Leskin to Speak at PLI’s The Ethics of Electronic Information 2016
Partner Lori Leskin, co-head of Kaye Scholer’s Product Liability group, will speak at the Practising Law Institute’s The Ethics of Electronic Information 2016: Competence, Confidentiality, and Other Ethical Conundrums program in New York on November 2, 2016. Leskin and fellow faculty of private practitioners will address how the use and misuse of electronic information poses serious ethical problems for lawyers, especially when communicating with the public and clients.
The CLE program will address a number of cutting edge ethical issues, including:
- “technology” amendments to the Model Rules of Professional Conduct;
- protecting confidentiality when using electronic information;
- risks of waiving attorney-client privilege and work product as well as confidentiality;
- duty to supervise third-party service providers;
- social media for professional and business purposes, and for investigating witnesses and jurors;
- advising clients about social media use;
- The “dos and don’ts” of communicating with judges; and
- filing documents electronically
Knowledge of the ethical implications of electronic communications—including social media—is becoming essential to successfully practicing law today and tomorrow. This program is designed for lawyers who use or must deal with electronic information, whether to advertise, communicate or litigate.
