The Ethics of Electronic Information 2017: Competence, Confidentiality, and Other Ethical Conundrums

Electronic information is all-pervasive and its use and misuse can pose serious ethical problems for attorneys. Attorneys use electronic information to communicate with the public and with clients, to advertise their services, and to prosecute and defend litigation. Electronic communications have now expanded to include social media and that media poses expanded opportunities and risks for attorneys.

Learn about the ethical issues arising out of electronic information from our diverse faculty of private practitioners as well as a sitting Justice of the New York Supreme Court. This highly topical program will address the cutting edge ethical issues arising out of the electronic information that attorneys use on a daily basis.

This program will benefit every attorney who uses or must deal with electronic information, whether to advertise, communicate or litigate. Whether you are in solo practice, with a small or “mega” firm, a corporation or a government agency, knowledge of the ethical implications of electronic communications – including social media – is essential to the successful practice of law today and tomorrow.

Topics Include:

    • The “technology” amendments to the Model Rules of Professional Conduct and those adopted in New York and New Jersey
    • The baseline knowledge a competent attorney should have to deal with electronic information
    • The protection of confidentiality when using and “keeping” electronic information and the risks of waiver of attorney-client       privilege and work product 
    • The duty to supervise third-party service providers
    • The ethical use of social media for professional and business purposes
    • The ethical advice that should be given to a client about social media
    • The use of social media to investigate witnesses and jurors and to interact with judges
