The Ethics of Managing Negativity in the Profession

Available: In Stock      
Price: $64.95      

As lawyers, our duty of confidentiality provides the cornerstone of our relationships with our clients.  We’ve grown accustomed to quiet withdrawals, transfers of representation, and doing our best for our clients and former clients even when they’ve not been at their best. Our duties as zealous advocates can put us in the line of fire of difficult parties and opposing counsel, while requiring us to maintain the integrity of the profession and respect the rights of others. The practice of law has always required customer service skills and a measure of resilience.  Social media has opened new avenues for clients and lawyers to complain and blow off steam, necessitating enhanced resiliency and communication skills. This one hour ethics CLE explores how lawyers inadvertently (and sometimes not) can run afoul of duties of confidentiality, exceed the limits of zealous advocacy, and otherwise engage in misconduct in the forum of social media, and the tools lawyers can employ to meet the challenges of modern law practice.

This CLE is approved for credit through April 2, 2019.
