Sounds good, and is certainly affordable for 2 hours of ethics CLE credit. Provided by the D.C. Bar. To be held, pending weather, Wednesday, January 28, 2009, from 6:00-8:15 pm:
This interactive program uses hypothetical scenarios to explore unique issues involving the use of electronic communications and documents by lawyers. This practical class will help you to learn about the ethical limits on using new technologies when communicating with clients and others; the ethics implications of working with service providers and discarding electronic files; the rules governing communications with adversaries (including ex parte contacts, metadata, and sending "unscrubbed" documents, inadvertent transmittal of communications from adversaries, and limits on deceptive conduct); outsourcing of legal work; duty to retain electronic documents when anticipating litigation; and preparing privilege logs for electronic communications.
- Location: D.C. Bar Conference Center, at 1250 H Street, NW, near New York and 13th.
