For those of you that think I only come up with weird ideas when it comes to my weblog, I insist on taking at least some credit for this month's Texas Bar Journal theme, which takes advantage of the upcoming Halloween holiday to provide an issue centered around assorted creepy topics. (Digital edition here).
Ever wonder if a real estate seller is required to disclose that their house is haunted? We've got you covered. Wonder if a haunted house is unreasonably scary? Yeah, that too. Plus what every Texas lawyer should know about the European witch hunts. And for something really scary, there are three orders from the Texas Supreme Court and the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals regarding fees, business records affidavits and bar admissions rules, as well as an ethics opinion dealing with the employment of law clerks.
For those content with more mundane topics, we also have an article on how to select the right legal software for your practice. (You guessed it - that's my favorite).
Kudos to managing editor Patricia McConnico and her staff as well as board of editors chair John Browning for another great issue. (But I do get credit for not laughing out loud when the idea was brought up in my last board of editors meeting as chair).
