TELESEMINAR: Attorney Ethics and Digital Communications – A National Perspective [LIVE REPLAY*]
May 19, 2014
12:00 – 1:00 p.m.
1.00 MCLE hours, including 1.00 approved Professional Responsibility MCLE credit hours
The most basic ways in which attorneys do their work – prepare and exchange documents, communicate with each other, clients and the courts – has changed dramatically. Today, everyone is interconnected not only at their desk computers but also on the road and even walking down the street. Information is seemingly accessible anywhere – through a smartphone, a tablet, remotely from the “Cloud” – and by anyone. These changes have happened so rapidly that it is easy to overlook the real and substantial ethical issues these new forms of communications raise. This program – which was originally presented on January 31, 2014 – will provide you with a real-world guide to the ethical issues of using mobile and digital communications, and social media, in law practice.
- Ethical issues in using digital and wireless devices to work and communicate
- Smartphones – confidentiality and privilege issues in voice and data transmissions
- The Cloud – client files and communications on shared networks
- Tablets – data security and confidentiality issues
- Social media – communicating, investigating and making representations online
