Video Presentation

“Cyber Space” is a relatively new “place” – a world which blends the “virtual world” with what is commonly referred to as the “real world.” As a nascent environment, a concrete list of ethical principles that govern the relationships between individuals and entities, much less those between lawyer and client, has not yet been fully developed. Lawyers who enter and practice in cyber-space must deal with ethical issues that are significantly more complex simply because of where they occur. For example, could law firm’s failure to encrypt client information be viewed as malpractice? Can the attorney-client relationship exist if it’s solely “in the Cloud?”

In this interactive session of Just Ethics, Michael Sean Quinn explores legal ethics in cyber-space – addressing issues with legal malpractice, a lawyer’s fiduciary duties, dealing with advertising rules, and “pure legal ethics.”
