All members of the California State Bar must heed the Rules of Professional Conduct as they represent clients through video conferences, Zoom depositions, online court hearings, and other remote means. Even as courts reopen and attorneys return to the office, remote representation and advocacy will continue to some degree due to their practicalities and efficiencies. This program addresses legal ethics as applied to remote representation, including duties of diligence and competence, matters to consider when advising clients and protecting their interests, ways to keep clients adequately informed and their confidences secure, and the impact of obligations to the court, opposing counsel, and unrepresented parties.
• Fulfilling duties of diligence and competence in remote representation
• Protecting client interests in remote hearings and depositions
• Keeping clients informed and information secure working from home
