Legal Ethics In The Age Of COVID-19: What Lawyers Need To Know (Webinar)

LegalEthicsintheAgeofCOVID-19WhatLawyersNeedtoKnow_Social_web_675X250

The spread of the coronavirus has caused massive disruption and created a potential minefield for lawyers, who retain all their ethical duties under the New York Rules of Professional Conduct. Ethical obligations do not change, regardless of whether you are ill, your client is sick, or the courthouse is closed. During this webinar, panelists will provide guidelines to assist lawyers in complying with their ethical duties during this pandemic and beyond.

Discussion topics include the following and many more . . .

Reductions in personal contact between lawyer and client, communication challenges, clients with diminished capacity to proceed, working remotely, confidentiality issues, the confidentiality of information, who’s listening, security and safeguarding confidentiality, a lawyer’s duty to be sufficiently technologically proficient to protect client confidentiality and diligence in a constantly changing situation, court closings and orders regarding filings, appearances, and the statute of limitations tolling.
