Ethical minefields are lurking everywhere, particularly in the area of family law. Join Angela Scafuri, Shareholder at Wilentz, Goldman & Spitzer, for an informative program designed to identify the most frequent ethical issues in family law and how to address them.
This seminar will focus on the ethical implications of e-discovery and social media in family law cases, with a close look at recent case law and advisory opinions from various jurisdictions. The program will assist both new and seasoned family law practitioners in understanding the do’s and do not’s involving attorney-client privilege, confidentiality, e-discovery, and social media, as well as provide tips and “best practices” that can be put to immediate use to avoid ethical pitfalls.

Course title Family Law Ethics. No real connection; just a broad based course. change title.to reflect what is given in course.
Though it was a good program, since focused so much on NJ and NY practice areas, it would probably not be best for VA attorneys learning about ethics opinions in their state, as ethics opinions about some of these smaller family law tech issues vary greatly from state to state. Very knowledgeable attorney though.
