    Preparing witnesses – whether fact witnesses or experts – for deposition or trial or conferring with them during breaks in testimony fraught with ethical issues. Expert witnesses are paid for their time, not their testimony. Though they may be hired to support a client’s view of the facts, there are limits to how experts can be coached. There are also real limits to how attorneys can prompt fact witnesses, for instance to “not remember” unfavorable facts. There are also significant ethical issues involving how to handle inadvertently produced privileged documents and when testimony goes in an unexpected adverse direction. This program will provide you with a practical guide to the ethical issues and traps of working with witnesses.

    • Paying witnesses for their time versus their testimony
    • Prompting a witness to “not remember” unfavorable testimony
    • Conferring with witnesses during deposition breaks and the limits of what you advise
    • Dishonest witnesses – what are your obligations to the court and your client?
    • How to handle the inadvertent production of privileged documents
    • Drafting witness affidavits without interviewing the witness

    Law practice without email is difficult to imagine.  Clients and courts not only use it but expect lawyers to use it for communications. But email comes with a host of substantial ethical issues.  Is email secure?  Can it be used to – even inadvertently – create an attorney-client relationship? How does email impact the attorney-client privilege?  What about email conversations with a represented adversary?  How can confidentiality and other ethical duties be satisfied when law firms almost always work with outside vendors to provide email?  These and other substantial ethical questions will be discussed in this practical guide to the ethical issues when lawyers use email in their practices.

     

    • Beginning an attorney relationship via email – intentionally and inadvertently
    • Effect on attorney-client privilege when using a vendor for email
    • Discarding/deleting email and working with outside vendors
    • Ex parte communications with represented adversaries
    • Corporate counsel issues – in-house creation of documents, legal v. business advice
    • Inadvertently sent email and metadata embedded in email
