    Lawyer Ethics and Investigations for and of Clients

    Registration Fee:  $55.00

    Investigations by lawyers are an essential element of most litigation.  Lawyers investigate the parties and the facts underlying the case through the use of third-party investigators, online searches, obtaining public records, seeking the production of electronic communications, including text messages, and much more.  Also, lawyers sometimes need to investigate their own clients – to assure themselves of the veracity of certain representations or when the lawyer suspects the client may be actively misleading the lawyer.  These investigations are not without risk. Ethics rules limit what lawyers can do and say, and how the work product of these investigations may be used.  This program will provide you with a practical guide to ethical issues when lawyers conduct investigations.

    • Duty of an attorney to investigate a case before filing a lawsuit
    • “Pre-texting” – the ethics of deception  in investigations
    • Ethical issues when a lawyer investigates a client – and when it is ethically required
    • Conflicts of interest in investigations
    • Ethical issues in social media and online searches – and obtaining text messages
    • Use of third-party investigators
    • Limitations on investigating members of a jury or jury pool
    • When investigations go awry – discipline, sanctions, exclusion of evidence obtained

    Technology allows lawyers far more flexibility to practice law than ever before.  Lawyers can work in shared offices, splitting expenses with other small firms or solo practitioners. They can work remotely, from home or virtually anywhere, with basic computer and networking technology. But all these innovations come with ethics traps. These include issues of communications and confidentiality, supervising outsourced worked, multijurisdictional practice, and managing all the technology used to practice law from home.  This program will provide you with a practical guide to ethical issues when working from home or anywhere but a traditional office.

    • Disclosure to clients of virtual nature of law office
    • Duty of competence as a duty to understand technology
    • Electronic communications, confidentiality, and ethical risks in virtual law offices
    • How Web sites and a “virtual” presence implicate multijurisdictional practice issues
    • Outsourcing work to paralegal services, including fee sharing issues

    Ethical Issues in Contract Drafting

    Registration Fee:  $55.00

    Negotiating, drafting and reviewing contracts are processes fraught with ethical issues.  Negotiations sometimes require zealous advocacy, taking maximal positions; other times, they require delicacy and balance. Reviewing and drafting complex contracts is a similar ethical minefield. If you discover that the draft of a contract contains materially incorrect assumptions about the law but which will benefit your client, do you have the duty to disclose or correct the error?  In the same way, if the contract contains faulty assumptions about material facts, must you disclose those faulty assumptions?  And how do these rules apply when drafting a contract?  This program will provide you with a real world guide to the ethics of negotiating, drafting and reviewing contracts.

    • The law – when you know a counterparty has made faulty assumptions benefiting your client, must you say?
    • The facts – when a counterparty makes faulty factual assumptions, must you correct?
    • Ethics and rescission – are you ever ethically obligated to rescind or restate a contract?
    • Ethics in negotiations – what’s the line between zealous representation and deception?
