The pandemic has had many financial and non-financial impacts on the way lawyers practice law. Among other things, it has forced a dramatic shift in the means by which many lawyers practice law, including a move to more “virtual” practices and greater attention to a flexible work environment and the attendant well-being benefits. Many speculate that after the pandemic is over, lawyers will continue to rely on a virtual practice for some or a majority of their work. This course will discuss the ethical issues and best practices attorneys should follow when practicing virtually, including a discussion of technology issues, physical workspace issues, the proper etiquette for video hearings and trials, staff supervision, client confidences, and the risk of the unauthorized practice of law.

Speakers:
William (Bill) Slease, Esq., Professional Practice Program Director, State Bar of New Mexico
Briggs Cheney, Esq., Dixon Scholl Carrillo, PA
