Please note: The Missouri rule covering reporting ethics credits has changed. The previous rule of reporting three ethics credits over three years has been replaced by the requirement of reporting two ethics credits per year. To meet this requirement we are offering two one-hour sessions.
All states (including California, D.C., Illinois, and Missouri) have a version of Model Rule 4.2, which deals with a lawyer’s communicating directly with the party on the other side. This session will deal with circumstances under which a lawyer might do this, the consequences for violation of the rule, direct contacts among clients, issues relating to entity parties, pretexting, and social media.
IF YOU ARE VIEWING THIS WEBINAR FOR CLE, PLEASE CHECK WITH YOUR CLE ACCREDITING JURISDICTION(S) IN ADVANCE TO DETERMINE WHETHER IT QUALIFIES FOR CLE CREDIT.
