This issue of the PRACTITIONER is predominately focused in on providing you with articles examining certain new laws or updates and revisions to existing laws, each being enacted and/or implemented earlier this year. In addition to keeping you abreast of changes in the law, and how it could affect your practice, we are also providing you with an informative MCLE article on how judgment liens can be a powerful tool in your collection efforts, and a best practices article on how you can better manage your time in an effort to balance life/work activities.

We start off with author Louis J. Shapiro, who provides us an article on how the lawful recreational use of cannabis is having an effect on DUI prosecution. Next, author Princesherry Hechanova writes on important changes having an impact on immigration policies. We move onto attorney and professor Neil J. Wertlieb who examines several proposed new amendments to the Rules of Professional Conduct, and how those amendments can change current standards, and add new obligations for licensed practitioners. Thereafter author David R. Ruiz discusses how a Federal Court upheld the legality of the California anti-fraud provisions and added some notice and hearing requirements to guarantee due process for medical providers. Finishing up the update articles, author Steven L. Krongold examines the issue of what property interest—and, therefore, profits—a dissolved law firm might have in cases that are in progress but not completed at the time of dissolution.
