1.0 CLE Credit of which 1.0 is Ethics

Virtually every form of technology that lawyers use in their personal lives and in their law offices has significant ethical implications.  Client files transmitted through WiFi – shared, wireless networks at the office, at home, or in public places – can be accessed by third parties, breaching client confidentiality.  Law firm web sites or LinkedIn pages designed to highlight lawyer skills, experience and victories may unintentionally disclose more information about client matters than is ethically permissible.  Social media research can go too far in obtaining information about adversaries, jurors or others.  Text messaging with clients, which is increasingly mainstream, may give rise to the duty to preserve certain messages that would otherwise be deleted by the telephone company.  This program will provide you with a roadmap through the maze of ethical issues that occur when lawyers use technology in their lives and practices. 

  • Ethical issues when using technology for professional and personal purposes
  • Blurry line between using technology (smartphones, tablets, computers) for personal purposes versus for law practice
  • WiFi, the “Cloud,” and shared networks – ensuring that client communications & files are secure and confidential
  • Text messaging – the duty to retain certain client communications
  • Law firm web sites and blogs – what information can/can’t you share and promote for client development purposes?
  • Social media – understanding the limits of what information you can obtain on clients, adversaries, jurors and others

Speaker:
Brian S. Faughnan is special counsel in the Memphis office of Lewis Thomason, PC, where he represents clients in a wide variety of matters at the trial level and on appeal.  He counsels lawyers and law firms on a wide variety of issues surrounding legal ethics and professional responsibility. He is the chair of the Tennessee Bar Association’s Standing Committee on Ethics and Professional Responsibility, a reporter for the committee’s rules revision project, a member of the Association of Professional Responsibility Lawyers, and a member of the Media Law Resource Center’s Ethics Committee. Mr. Faughnan received his B.A. from Rhodes College and his J.D., magna cum laude, from the University of Memphis School of Law.
