A discussion of various ethical situations involving trial procedure, pleadings, motions, and discovery.
Ethics and Social Media in Court
In this webinar, we'll examine a variety of real-world cases demonstrating the many ways lawyers have intentionally or unintentionally breached the rules of ethics or trial procedure with the use of common social media platforms and messaging apps. We'll also discuss how these problems are being addressed by various State Bar Disciplinary Systems. We'll share examples of how fiduciary duty and conflicts of interest are often intertwined and inconsistent with the use of websites, testimonials, and inappropriate communications between parties (and by the judge) during trials and ongoing proceedings.
