Natalie Vance hosted a webinar offering guidance to lawyers on how to navigate recent changes to California’s Rules of Professional Conduct. As the application of ethical rules continues to evolve, it is essential to maintain a strong understanding of ethical duties.
With technology rapidly changing how people communicate, gather information, and how courts evaluate attorney conduct, the use of California’s ethical rules to practice law has continued to expand. Ms. Vance offered attorneys and legal assistants practical guidance and valuable insight to better understand the connection between the California Rules of Professional Conduct governing the profession and social media. Furthermore, recent court decisions have forced attorneys to reassess how they manage certain situations. This webinar illustrated how to recognize and manage conflicts of interest in joint representation settings, to disclose professional relationships, and to properly and effectively settle disputes.
