January 21st at 10:00 a.m. PST / 1:00 EST
First graders have mastered the art of remote meetings during distance learning, but some seasoned lawyers still do not understand how to effectively use mute or turn off their camera. In this webinar, we navigate through the risky waters of using remote depositions and meetings in your law practice. We offer practical tips for meeting four primary ABA Model Rules of Professional Conduct: Competence (Rule 1.1), Communications (Rule 1.4), Confidentiality of Information (Rule 1.6) and Responsibilities Regarding Nonlawyer Assistance (Rule 5.3). The key takeaways will be understanding the technology, training and practice and being mindful of your video and audio surroundings.
