CLE CREDITS:  1.0 ethics

Brought to you in partnership with WebCredenza
These telephone seminars are presented by national speakers who are experts in their areas of practice often ABA Section chairs, authors of books in their areas of practice, and heads of practice groups.

Not all information that passes between a client and his or her lawyer is confidential. Even if information is confidential, there are circumstances when a lawyer may or is even required to disclose the information to courts or other parties. If the information is confidential, what are the ethical issues if a lawyer inadvertently discloses the information? There is also the closely related issue of the attorney-client privilege. The ethical duty of confidentiality is related to but separate and distinct the privilege. How does violation of one raise issues for the other? This program will provide you with a practical guide to the ethics of confidentiality, its relationship to the attorney-client privilege, and best practices to avoid ethical sanction.

  • Scope of the duty of confidentiality – what is and is not confidential?
  • Circumstances when confidential information may or must be disclosed to courts and others
  • Interrelationship between duties of confidentiality and competence when using law office technology
  • Inadvertent and unauthorized disclosure of client confidences & ethical sanction & liability issues
  • How violation of either the attorney-privilege or confidentiality impacts the other
  • ·         Confidentiality in joint representations – managing information flows to avoid ethical sanction
