About the Program
This talk will present the basic outline of the law of fiduciary duties. It will take the audience on a brief tour of an unusual eBook, available in the Library's collection, which serves as a practical vehicle to find relevant cases in this area, to understand the thinking behind the cases, and to learn this field of law. When the reader has time, this eBook may even afford entertainment in the form of "legal fairy tales." The talk will also present a short history and overview of eBooks and will offer some views on the impact of electronic research on the development of our law today.
About the Speaker
RAFAEL CHODOS has been an attorney in private practice in Los Angeles for over 37 years. Before he became an attorney, he taught Latin, Greek and Hebrew in high school and college. After receiving his B.A. from UC-Berkeley in philosophy, he went into the computer field where he started his own software company which specialized in an early application of artificial intelligence: the design and optimization of large-scale telecommunications networks.
After becoming a lawyer, he maintained his interest in computers and published his treatise, The Law of Fiduciary Duties (2000, Blackthorne Legal Press) simultaneously in hardcover and CD-ROM formats. His treatise has been cited by several California courts of appeal, and by the California Supreme Court. In 2010, he launched an online eBook library, and in 2011, after the hardcover edition of his treatise had sold out, he published the second edition as an eBook in a dedicated chamber of that library. He is the author of several books and many articles on the history of ideas, philosophy, religion, and art, as well as law.
