(VIDEO REPLAY) Ethics in the Electronic Age: Be Careful When Using That Cell Phone, BlackBerry, Blog, Social Network…
Monday, Aug 22 2011

Using the latest technology to communicate with clients, the court, and the public is often a necessary part of a lawyer's job. But incorrect use of these tools can lead to disaster, particularly when it involves the inadvertent disclosure of a client's confidential information. The stakes are raised even higher when information created, distributed, or stored electronically is subject to discovery. This program will address common mistakes that lawyers make with cell phones, speaker phones, voicemail, e-mail, and wireless handheld devices like BlackBerries. Additionally, using illustrations from a wide variety of matters including commercial, matrimonial, criminal, and family law cases, the program will provide a basic grounding in electronic discovery and address common errors lawyers make in handling matters involving electronically stored information (ESI). Finally, the audience will hear about how the next generation of Internet communications (e.g., blogs and social networks) carry with them even greater risks along with their benefits. This program's updated content will provide CLE credit to all attendees, even if they attended in the past.
