VIDEO ENCORE: Legal Ethics Hot Topics – Recent Developments & Lessons Learned

Originally presented during the 2021 Virtual Bench-Bar and Annual Conference

2020-2021 has been a busy year for legal ethics developments. Panelists will discuss concrete examples of common ethical pitfalls and how best to overcome them, if not avoid them altogether. Using recent court decisions and ethics opinions as a guide, this video-encore CLE is designed to provide advice that is practical, current, and valuable no matter the practice area of the attorney or size of the firm.

Panelists will address the following topics, among others:
  • What is a “material adversity” for purposes of analyzing whether a conflict of interest exists under Rule 1.9 (duties to former clients) and Rule 1.18 (duties to prospective clients)?
  • Issues relating to the attorney-client privilege in the investigation of a cybersecurity breach and best practices to protect privilege
  • Discrimination in the practice of law:  Covered by the misconduct rules?
  • Fee Disputes: Discussion of recent opinion(s), with an emphasis on the fee disputes resolution program through the Bar Association
  • Use of Social Media within the bounds of the Rules of Professional Conduct: The impact of social media on the practice of law, particularly as it relates to business development (solicitation and advertising)
