Jane Broadwater Long of Lawyers Mutual Insurance Company will present this one hour program.
Due to the pandemic, attorneys were thrust into the remote / virtual practice of law beginning in March of 2020. The “Zoom Boom” was born and continues still. While technology has enabled the legal system to move forward, albeit slowly, that same technology has posed an array of challenges. Lawyers’ ethical duties to their clients and within the profession have NOT changed because of Covid-19, but the ability to discharge those duties has become more difficult. In some instances, new and different ethical concerns have arisen. This presentation will review important ethical requirements and discuss how to meet those responsibilities in the current climate.
The program has been approved by the Kentucky Bar Association and Indiana Commission for CLD for 1.0 hour of ETHICS, and accreditation is pending with the Ohio CLE Commission for 1.0 hour of professionalism.
