Loose Lips Sink Partnerships: The Ethical Way to Honor Client Confidentiality

CLE CREDITS: 1.0 ethics

One of the most sacrosanct duties for lawyers is the duty of confidentiality. A client has a right to trust that his or her lawyer will not improperly divulge information about the representation. This trust is one of the hallmarks of the client-lawyer relationship. In this surprisingly funny webinar, legal humorist Sean Carter will explore the contours of the rules concerning lawyer confidentiality.

Drawing on examples from his annual Ethy Awards for the worst ethical behavior, Sean Carter will illustrate the ethical consequences of violating these rules.

In particular, this webinar will cover:

  • The general duties of confidentiality to prospective, current and past clients;
  • How and when clients can waive their right to confidentiality
  • The circumstances in which lawyers may ethically disclose client information
  • The duty to avoid even inadvertent and unauthorized disclosures
  • The consequences of breaching confidentiality
