Legal Ethics in the Era of Social Media, BYOD, the Cloud and eDiscovery

In our data-driven and threat-filled world, companies - and thus their counsel - bear increased responsibilities to protect sensitive information and not to overstep access boundaries. In the past couple years, bar associations and the judiciary have bee​n sprinting to issue opinions to keep up with rapidly changing technologies. This topic will drill down on some of the key modern ethical obligations placed on lawyers both day-to-day and in litigation. Learn the do's and don'ts as to many "hot topics," including: social media ethics concerns as to opposing parties, witnesses, jurors and judges; the interplay between no-employee-privacy BYOD policies and individual workers' potential attorney-client privilege rights; reasonable care obligations as to outsourced data storage; and increased eDiscovery competency expectations.​
