Course #ET161001 – Ethics Challenges in the Virtual Law Firm

1/2 Hour of CA MCLE Legal Ethics Credit.

Virtual Law Firm. Virtual Law Office. Virtual Law Practice. All are practices in which attorneys work remotely using technology, and all are gaining in popularity in California due to their convenience and efficiency. With their virtual nature, however, virtual law firms raise potential ethical issues as the California Rules of Professional Conduct were designed with brick-and-mortar law firms in mind. It’s essential to understand how virtual practices can run afoul of these rules and act proactively with your firm. For example, are you violating the ethical standard of maintaining a client trust account in California (client’s residence) if you and the client reside in different states and funds are held electronically through online payments? (Rule 4-100: Preserving the Identity of Client Funds and Property of the Client) In this course, Brenda J. Edwards, Esq., a practicing California estate law attorney who has built her own virtual law firm, will share her proven recommendations for building an ethically sound virtual practice. In particular, the Course will address Rule 1-300 in relation to the ethical formation of your business entity (being aware of state entity formation limitations so you are not unwittingly engaged in the unauthorized practice of law), Rule 3-100 (maintaining confidentiality of client information and acting competently when relying on third parties to protect that information), Rule 3-500 (communication with clients while mitigating security risks), Rule 1-400 (advertising and solicitation rules that are easily forgotten, down to the size of the font required for the words “advertising” and the length of time you must maintain copies of mailing circulars), Rule 3-410 (professional liability insurance requirements: When you must have it and when you must disclose you don’t), and Rule 4-100 (preservation of the identify of client funds and property of the client within the virtual realm).

Course #ET161005
Cyber Threats and The Duty of Confidentiality

1/2 Hour of CA MCLE Legal Ethics Credit.

California attorneys owe their clients a duty of confidentiality under Rule 3-100. A massive change in the scale and scope of cyber threats, however, have added new challenges to complying with this rule. In addition, Section 952 of the California Evidence Code bans disclosures of client information to third parties – something that is literally impossible on the Internet. This course explores ways that attorneys are newly vulnerable to ethics complaints, malpractice complaints and civil litigation in the new era of cyber security. The course also suggests some approaches to risk mitigation that are practical for large and small law firms.

Course #ET161102
CA Legal Ethics in the Real Life of a Practicing Attorney

The California Rules of Professional Conduct may seem abstract to attorneys caught up in the day-to-day realities of law practice. However, these rules bear on numerous areas of practice. Quick decisions, with easy-to-overlook implications, can have major consequences. This course reviews a number of common rule violations that can arise in the real life of a practicing attorney. Presented by an experienced contract attorney, this course covers such topics as:

  • Rule 1-300 – Not aiding in the “Unauthorized Practice of Law.”
  • Rule 1-320 – Not making financial arrangements between lawyers and non-lawyers.
  • Rule 1-400 – Staying within what is permitted for lawyer advertising.
  • Rule 2-100  – Not communicating with represented parties.
  • Rule 3-100 – Revealing client communications in order to prevent a crime resulting in death or substantial bodily harm.
  • Rule 3-200 – Not bringing claims not warranted by existing law, unless the lawyer has a good faith argument for extension, modification or reversal of the law.
  • Rule 3-300 – Avoiding interests adverse to a client.
  • Rule 3-500 – Keeping the client informed.
  • Rule 3-700 – Terminating employment when client difficult, or not paying.
  • Not violating Civ. Code 2944.7 and 6106.3 regarding loan modification work.

Course #ET161101 How to Identify and Handle Conflicts of Interest

Conflicts of interest can be difficult to identify and understand. Factor in the residual duty to former clients, and one can see how quickly and easily the list of possible conflicts of interest could become overwhelming. Unfortunately, the relevant rule on conflicts of interest, Rule 3-310, is somewhat general. It does not appear to provide much guidance in actually identifying a conflict of interest. This is partly because rule 3-310 is primarily enforced through civil litigation, typically through a motion for disqualification for pending litigation or a malpractice suit. To help practicing attorneys cope with the issue, this course provides a practical approach to dealing with potential conflicts of interest. Topics covered include:

  • Avoiding the representation of adverse interests
  • Issues that arise in representing joint clients
  • Former clients and the duty of loyalty
  • Avoiding conflicts when changing jobs
  • Disqualification
