This CLE program will address new ethics-related issues in the “digital context,” the new and modified Rules of Professional Conduct, as well as some of the frequently-raised issues relating to aggressive litigation and the adversarial process, which should be “spotted” by attorneys for closer examination. Need-to-know, “high-impact” ethics issues to keep both your client and your law license include: understanding the differences between ethics and morality; questionable investigative techniques; the media’s sensationalism of the “trial lawyer”; the “zealous” advocacy defense; the impact of technology inside and outside the courtroom, including computer malpractice; and understanding the disciplinary process.
