This is a remarkable time – lawyers are working remotely, courts are closed, and we are using Zoom regularly. Are lawyers working from home or living at work? The reality is that working remotely is difficult, and this presentation will explore lawyers’ ethical obligations under these circumstances.
• How do lawyers competently represent our clients when the courts are open one day and closed the next, or when lawyers can’t get into their own office?
• Do conflicts arise if the client wants to go to trial but the lawyer is concerned about health risks?
• What are the ethical implications if a court tries to order a lawyer to trial?
This presentation will advise lawyers on best practices to work remotely and competently while effectively representing clients during a pandemic.
The next seminar in this series is at noon on Friday, August 14, on Sentencing Mitigation and Habeas.
