Podcast: Legal Ethics and Technology: Proposals of the ABA Ethics 20/20 Commission

At the American Bar Association annual meeting in August, the House of Delegates will take up the recommendations of the ABA Commission on Ethics 20/20. The commission spent three years conducting an in-depth review of whether advances in technology requires changes to the Model Rules of Professional Conduct. The commission has recommended a number of changes to the rules and comments, addressing issues that range from client confidentiality to client development.

On this week’s Lawyer2Lawyer, we consider the commission’s recommendations with two guests: Andrew M. Perlman, chief reporter for the Commission on Ethics 20/20 and a professor of law at Suffolk University Law School, and Bradley S. Shear, Maryland attorney and author of the blog, Shear on Social Media Law.
