The pandemic has upended lawyering – no more live meeting. Learn about the pitfalls and ethical duties of remote lawyering, including confidentiality, attorney-client privilege, and your duties to third parties. What discussions do you now need to have with your clients about conferencing with or using Zoom or other teleconferencing platforms? Does the use of teleconferencing change the ethical considerations in taking depositions? How proficient do you need to be in the use of Zoom or other teleconferencing platforms to meet your ethical obligations? What considerations do you need to make working out of your home office while others are at home? These and other questions and issues will be addressed in the context of the Washington Rules of Professional Conduct and ABA advisory opinions.
