About this Webcast:

Gone are the days when you could run to the mailbox to snatch back a letter that contained wrong or confidential information. No longer do you have the extra time to express your thoughts because you weren't yet near a phone.

Whether because it's expected or because you can, you answer quickly. That increases the risk of accidentally revealing private information and decreases the time you have to catch them before they do their damage.

In the practice of law -- in communications between inside and outside counsel -- this can cause serious trouble for cases and careers. Join us on April 19 for a 90-minute CLE-eligible webinar when our speakers will discuss the tactical and ethical risks associated with rapid digital communications tools, from email to texts to mobile message apps.

What we will cover:

  • The rise of the problem of accidentally disclosing information: from “loose lips sink ships” to a regulated reality in the modern workplace.
  • How ethics rules about communications have been drafted around the idea of a reasonable expectation of privacy and how changes in technology have changed what this means.
  • How disaggregated business models -- using freelancers and vendors for work that once would have been done within a corporation --complicates the role of both in-house counsel and external lawyers.
  • How mobility and mobile devices have complicated privacy and communications.

*CLE is approved or in the process of approval for the mandatory CLE states listed below for 90 minutes of CLE credit. The type of credit allowed will be determined by the state governing MCLE Board.
