NEW YORK LEGAL ETHICS REPORTER (NYLER) was the product of a collaboration between Frankfurt Kurnit Klein & Selz PC and the Maurice A. Deane School of Law at Hofstra University. For three years, the publication proudly continued the tradition of the former New York Professional Responsibility Report (NYPRR) — which had been published for more than a decade by our dear friend Lazar Emanuel, who passed away in 2012. After Prof. Emanuel’s passing, the Emanuel family graciously allowed NYLER to republish the NYPRR archives.


NYLER periodically published articles focusing on current topics in the field of ethics and professionalism. The articles were written by the NYLER editorial board with contributions from other experts in the field.


NYLER ceased publication in the fall of 2017. Because NYLER featured scores of insightful articles written by leading scholars, the editors have elected to leave the website up as a searchable archive for use by researchers and practitioners.


If you have questions about any of the articles or about other attorney ethics or professional responsibility matters, please contact Ron Minkoff at (212) 705 4837 or
