I do a lot of speaking on ethics, mostly on ethical issues in patent prosecution and litigation. I’ve worked with cleonline.com for decades now (they were I think the first on-line provider), and I put together what I think is a cool presentation on the impact of technology on practice. You can take it here. (California, Texas, and perhaps other states are pre-aproved but read the fine print.)
Their ad is below… (My article about how innovation affects patenting is coming out soon, they say, all 294 footnotes of it.)
CLEonline.com is pleased to present a special online legal ethics program in which Professor David Hricikaddresses the myriad of practical ways that technology creates ethical issues for practicing lawyers. Professor Hricik discusses both the potential major trends — artificial intelligence changing daily legal practice, and technological developments like driverless cars potentially reducing car accidents which could affect entire practice areas — as well as the more immediate concerns. The latter includes the risks of communicating with clients while they are at work, inadvertent transmission of email, metadata (“hidden” confidential information in things like Word documents), cloud storage, and dealing with negative on-line reviews. This presentation mixes humor, fear, and practical tips to give 3 solid hours of Legal Ethics that matter and are immediately relevant to your law practice. The course features streaming video and audio (as well as downloadable MP3 audio) presentations.
Some of the subjects for this course include:
The speaker for this course is Professor David Hricik, of Mercer University School of Law in Macon, Georgia. Professor Hricik was elected to the American Law Institute in 2016. He has authored the only treatise on ethical issues in patent litigation, and co-authored the only treatise on ethical issues in patent prosecution. In addition to serving leadership positions on ethics committees with the AIPLA and ABA and serving as an expert witness, he has written dozens of articles and given well over 100 presentations on issues at the intersection of ethics and patents. His articles and testimony have been adopted by both state and federal courts.
In addition, regular CLE credits for this seminar may also be available in a number of other states through CLE Reciprocity, such as FLORIDA, or as an “Approved Jurisdiction”, such as TENNESSEE. Please check with the Tennessee State Bar for accreditation information.
