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.

Listen to the show at the Legal Talk Network.
