In this webinar, we will explore numerous real-world cases highlighting how lawyers have intentionally or unintentionally violated ethical rules or trial procedures through the use of social media platforms and messaging apps. We will also discuss how various State Bar Disciplinary Systems are addressing these issues. Additionally, we will provide examples of how fiduciary duty and conflicts of interest often become intertwined and inconsistent with the use of websites, testimonials, and inappropriate communications between parties (and by judges) during trials and ongoing proceedings.
