    This program will focus on a series of case studies involving in-house lawyers who got into trouble for (allegedly or actually) violating legal ethics rules, acting improperly in response to government investigations, and assisting their employers in perpetrating fraudulent or criminal acts. We will review the case studies, discuss what the lawyers involved could have done to avoid trouble, and tease out steps that you and your law department can take to protect yourselves from the potential pitfalls highlighted by the case studies.

    Developing technologies and our increasingly mobile and global society enhance the logistical ease and potential benefits of multi-jurisdictional practice. However, inconsistent licensing and unauthorized practice of law rules and the fundamental need to protect privilege and privacy may limit its usefulness and efficiency. In this session, in-house counsel from organizations with multi-jurisdictional presence will share ideas about how their companies and others might use available technology to better leverage resources across jurisdictions. Just as importantly, they will identify some potential pitfalls — ethical and otherwise — to help participants understand the practical and legal parameters of such practices involving MRCP 5.5.
