Correction: The article titled “The Duty of Self-Report Malpractice to the Client” in the August 2014 Virginia Lawyer relied on content from an earlier article by Professor Benjamin P. Cooper of the University of Mississippi School of Law. By oversight, the author neglected to cite Professor Cooper’s earlier article. The corrected version of the article, including proper citation, is published below.
