This is part two of a two-part program addressing the professional conduct challenges facing lawyers in the digital era.
Technology has changed the ethical landscape for lawyers. This program will cover ethics issues associated with testimonials by clients; responding to negative online reviews; tweeting; blogging; interacting with potential clients on social networking sites: and crowdfunding of legal fees. Part One
(June 29, 2017) will cover ethics issues associated with friending witnesses; electronic communications with clients in the workplace; posting depositions online; text messaging; safeguarding client property in the cloud; jury research; and jury misconduct.
Both programs are accompanied by a comprehensive research paper with a shelf life so that you can reference it as needed to find ethical buoys to safely navigate through what can be treacherous waters.
*It is not required to take both programs since each program stands on its own
