“Ethics Unbound and Unmasked” CLE topics:
- Some things are not going away after the shots: Issues relating to practicing remotely/virtually.
- a. Working remotely from a jurisdiction where you are not licensed.
- b. Myriad issues in virtual practice.
- Some things stay the same: Stop making stupid threats.
- Some statutes, like NRS 7.095, cannot be waived.
- Some (jointly represented) clients should be declined.
- Some people just can’t be trusted: Be careful when outsourcing work.
- Say, this looks familiar: A few (hopefully original) words about plagiarism and its consequences.
- And you look familiar, too: How close is “too close” to opposing counsel?
- Responding to negative on-line reviews: Some things, at least for now, should be left unsaid.
- Obligations to prospective clients: Watch out for RPC 1.18.
- Lawyer mobility: I’ll keep talking about this topic until everyone gets it. For now, I’m clearing my throat.
- Dealing with pro se litigants: That’s correct; I’m not returning your calls.
- Other stuff if we have time.
