“Psst, Let’s Talk!” Communicating with Represented Parties


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.

The live presentation of this program was approved for 1.0 hour of ethics in Illinois, 1.0 hour of professional responsibility in California, and 1.2 hours of ethics in Missouri. CLE credit is no longer available for this recording.
