First Friday Ethics (March 2021)

Session 1: “Trying” Situations for Trial Attorneys: Top Issues and Everyday Practices to Avoid Malpractice (REPLAY)- Explore some of the top issues or common “missteps” that can get small-firm/solo practitioner trial attorneys into trouble, as well as the critical importance of being “selfish” about your own health and fitness avoid malpractice. Session 2: The Evolution of the ABA Model Rules on the Unauthorized Practice of Law: Myth vs. Reality (REPLAY) - Though the ABA Model Rules are intended to serve as a template for states to follow, the Model Rules are neither mandatory nor enforceable.  Model Rules provisions on the unauthorized practice of law have developed in response to social change but the language suggested is rarely followed in its exact form. The disparity between the Model Rules and what states actually require can cause significant confusion leading to the unintentional unauthorized practice of law. This presentation highlights some of those differences to help attorneys avoid jurisdictional traps and gotchas. Session 3: Technology and Ethics: Adapting to the post-COVID Practice of Law (REPLAY) - Explore the incorporation of technology into the practice of law in response to the COVID-19 crisis, and moving forward. Jessica Vittorio will discuss the utilization of various types of technologies, and the correlating ethical rules to be aware of as practitioners begin to engage with these technologies in practice.

    Well-done, but please turn OFF computer sounds (alerts, etc.) while presenting - - the beeps and chimes during the session were distracting.

    It was great but his email delivery signal kept going off throughout. I wish he had silenced that before he started.

    There was a glitch in the audio and constant bells sounding throughout the presentation that were distracting.

    This was extremely helpful. It's an important topic and it was taught well with great, practical examples.

    A very different perspective. I enjoyed it.

    This was not helpful to me. It was very light on the law and pretty much a plug for Ms. Bragg;s book and telling stories about her and her friends.

    I loved the personal stories.

    Excellent.

    The Course was excellent! I especially enjoyed Judge Keasler in "Ethics for Post-Conviction Lawyers," the session on ineffective assistance of counsel and appellate tips from the experts.

    This was attached as a supplement to the seminar for criminal appeals. Several of these topics had nothing to do with criminal appeals or criminal law in general. I would suggest that next time all of the topics deal with criminal law or appellate procedure/law.

    More criminal topics would be useful in this course for criminal practitioners, but there were a few standout exceptions-- like Katrina Grider's employment law talk.

    nice addition

Session 6: Revenge of the Sea Squirts: More Glenn West on Encrusted M&A Boilerplate - The need to understand and appropriately modify “standard” M&A boilerplate to fit your deal cannot be over emphasized. Glenn West builds on last year’s presentation and adds additional examples of the problems that unexamined/encrusted boilerplate can create in potentially undoing the specifically negotiated provisions of your deal. Session 7: Overview: Implementing Blockchain Solutions - The panel discusses a business approach to blockchain and how and where this technology is being implemented today; the legal, fiduciary and regulatory issues in drafting legal contracts into code; and blockchain from a cybersecurity perspective.

Session 14: Representation of Multiple Parties: Ethical and Practical Considerations - Examine the advantages and disadvantages of using pool counsel in internal investigations, including the impact of joint representation, whether the various clients' interests are sufficiently aligned, the types of agreements entered with the company, the logistics of the engagement, consequences of one client being charged or cooperating, and managing client information to avoid potential cross-contamination. Session 15: Ephemeral Data and Other Emerging Technology - In cybersecurity, staying on pace with current technology, issues, and approaches is a step behind. Practitioners must remain ahead of what is current, or else they will find themselves obsolete, commoditized, outside best practice, or a victim of a cyber incident or crisis. Take a look ahead with thought leadership and awareness around emerging, nascent, or predicted cyber technologies, approaches, threats, challenges, and applications such as transactional due diligence, ephemeral data, incident response, smart cities, alternative commerce and banking, identification, contracting, connected devices, artificial intelligence, risk transfer, data analytics, ethical and privacy concerns, IoT, industrial controls, and connectivity. Session 16: Wellness and Well-Being: Ethical and Professionalism Implications - Identify current life challenges facing lawyers, the professional responsibility and professionalism issues raised by lawyer impairment, and current efforts by the organized bar and legal employers to address issues of lawyer wellness and well-being.

    Great content. Thanks.

    Good, but a bit heavy on block-chain and other tech that while interesting to some is not widely applicable in a way that matters to practitioners.

    some of these courses sounded like marketing for the speakers. some where very good
