Program Number
Program Date

The adage that all publicity is good is not always true. The media are filled with stories about how lawyers end up in ethical and disciplinary hot water by filing improperly-redacted documents, disclosing confidential information to family and friends, and allowing technological ignorance to prejudice clients. This conduct may violate the Rules of Professional Conduct and subject attorneys to potential discipline under the Rules in their jurisdictions, including Rules 1.4, 1.6, 3.3, 3.4, 3.6, 4.1, 5.4 and 8.4. This program will highlight some infamous errors and demonstrate how to avoid errors that arise from common software such as Microsoft Office and Adobe Acrobat.
