CLE CREDITS: 1.0 ethics

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 potential ethics traps. These include issues of communications and confidentiality, supervising outsourced worked, multijurisdictional practice, and ethically managing all the technology used to practice law with this newfound flexibility. This program will provide you with a practical guide to significant issues when lawyers and law firms share office space, work remotely, or establish “virtual” practices.

  • Ethical issues when lawyers share office space or other resources but practice separately
  • Disclosure to clients of virtual nature of law office
  • 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
