February 15: The Changing Ethical Landscape of Litigation

The landscape of litigation certainly is changing, and dealing with new and evolving ethical issues along with it. "Fighting fair" is imperative, but why does it seem to be getting more difficult and complicated to do so? In part it may be because we have new technologies and new players "in the sandbox" with lawyers. Our panel of speakers will break down some of the most pestering yet important issues that impact lawyers every day: confidentiality, privilege and work product, conflicts of interest, contacting non-clients, dealing with experts, disclosure obligations, social media and electronic discovery.
Join us with speakers Jayne Reardon, Executive Director of the Illinois Supreme Court Commission on Professionalism; Lawrence J. Fox, Professor of professional responsibility at Yale Law School and author of several books and treatises on ethics; and Judge Deborah Mary Dooling (ret.) who sat on the Cook County Circuit Court for 23 years and also taught Professional Negligence for the Illinois Judicial Conference. Robert A. Clifford, founder and senior partner at Clifford Law Offices, will moderate the two-hour program.
