An article published in Volume 86 of the Tulane Law Review analyzing the “boundary claim,” or the idea that lawyers must represent clients zealously but within the bounds of the law, was selected as the winner of the third annual Fred C. Zacharias Memorial Prize for Scholarship in Professional Responsibility. The Boundary Claim’s Caveat: Lawyers and Confidentiality Exceptionalism, by University of Denver Professor Rebecca Aviel, centers on the asserted caveat to the “boundary claim”: the legal profession’s unwillingness to comply with the law if such compliance would result in a disclosure of client confidences. 1 The Fred C. Zacharias Memorial Prize for Scholarship in Professional Responsibility is a peer-reviewed competition, and the prize will be awarded at the 2013 annual meeting of the Association of American Law Schools.
