3.0 Ethics CLE Credits | CLE #2017-012

Registration fee: $115

 

Lots of speakers warn about the run-of-the-mill ethical concerns with technology, but only a select few understand the deep cuts— the cutting edge concerns that are shifting the practice of law and causing ethical headaches for sophisticated lawyers. Join “the CLE Performer” Stuart Teicher, Esq., as he explains both the expanding ethical pitfalls and the evolving ethical duties that lawyers face when using new technology. Attendees will learn about:

 

- The dangers that don’t get discussed like the paradigm shift being caused by Wikileaks and Snowden, and the pitfalls from the LinkedIn/Microsoft merger

- Using Artificial Intelligence Safely…in Plain English: Every tech guru tells you you need to understand artificial intelligence. But not a single one of them knows how it fits into the attorney ethics rules.  Learn about the ethical issues with data mining, machine learning, automated tasks and more (Rules 8.4, 5.3, 1.1)

- Phish-Hooked: The Ethical Implications of Getting Scammed Online. Whether it’s ransomware, bogus escrow agent arrangements, or fake disciplinary notices, lawyers need to be aware of the hustles being used to scam lawyers.   Stuart helps clarify a lawyer’s obligations when they become a target of online trickery. (Bar Opinions from Alaska #2016-1, Ohio #2016-8, DC Bar #371).

- Twitter Traps You Didn’t Consider: The pressure to tweet is immense, even if you want to resist…and the ethical concerns with using the medium are growing.  Stuart explains the ethical implications of retweeting (Rule 4.1), the pending terrorism criminal case that could have ethics implications for lawyers, the triggering concerns of Rule 3.6; and more.
