    Where No Ethics Have Gone Before: Staying On the Right Course in an Expanding Universe of Technology

    12 PM GMT

    We depend on modern tools in our practices while often taking them for granted. But the ABA Model Rules of Professional Conduct now tells us to “keep abreast of changes in the law and its practice, including the benefits and risks associated with relevant technology.” How can we keep up - and avoid potential ethical breaches and malpractice claims - as these technological advances affect our delivery of services and our communications with clients, colleagues, and the public? Using hypotheticals and illustrations, the panelists will suggest how the Trust & Estate lawyer (whether a planner or litigator or both) may navigate through the increasingly complex ethical minefields created by these developments.

     

    The panel will address such issues as:

    ·         Uses and abuses of social media;

    ·         Practicing from “the cloud”;

    ·         Preserving client confidentiality; and

    ·         Multi-jurisdictional practice.
