Program & Speaker:
New technology and digital communication is pushing the limits of the Rules of Professional Conduct. Can we apply the rules designed for old school law practice to the internet, email, blogging and social media? Does reading the tea leaves of ethics opinions cast any light on the future of the legal profession?
In this presentation, we will discuss:
· How ethics opinions are issued from the NC State Bar
· New and pending NC State Bar ethics opinions
· The future of the legal profession
