Free CLE Webinar: Understanding New Ethical Screening Rules, Requirements and Case Law

The Risk Roundtable initiative is hosting a webinar later this month on ethical screening. Event panelists include Lucian Pera (President, Association of Professional Responsibility Lawyers; Partner, Adams and Reese LLP) and Deborah Jeffrey (Loss Avoidance Partner, Zuckerman Spaeder LLP). CLE credit for the session is pending. This event is co-sponsored by IntApp, provider of risk management software and services for law firms. Event details:

This webinar will review current professional rules and new case law developments supporting the need to enhance law firm ethical screening and confidentiality management practices.

In the past year, several changes have raised the profile of confidentiality and risk management issues related to information management at law firms. These include the ABA's modification of Model Rule 1.10 to enable the unilateral ethical screening of conflicted lateral attorneys, increasing client interest in firm practices and standards, and expanding regulatory pressures for firms operating both domestically and internationally.

This Session Will Explore Topics Including:
  • Current US screening rules and requirements
  • New and evolving case law
  • Law firms response stratagies, including the role of technology in achieving compliance and mitigating risk
