Upcoming Webinar: Understanding the ABA 20/20 Ethics Rule Changes

The ABA recently approved changes to the Model Rules of Professional Conduct proposed by the Commission on Ethics 20/20. These changes clarify lawyers’ ethical obligations to protect client information, including a requirement for lawyers to achieve a basic understanding of the benefits and risks of relevant technology, such as cloud computing, and to take reasonable steps to safeguard client confidential information, including information in electronic form, against unauthorized or inadvertent access by third parties.
In this webinar, Pat Archbold, Head of IntApp’s Risk Practice, and Matt Wolf, Esq., Consultant at Carlson & Wolf, providers of law firm security consulting services, will review how these rule changes affect lawyers and how law firms can best respond. Topics will include:
  • ABA Model Rule changes
  • Client pressure
  • Insurer pressure
  • Evolution of technology
  • Response tactics
CLE CREDIT: We are a CLE approved educator by the State Bar of California. Certificates will be provided to attendees upon request.
