Lawyers are responsible for being familiar with and following the Model Rules of Professional Conduct, as adopted and in force in their jurisdiction. These duties include, but are not limited, to the duty of competence, including understanding technology, and keeping client communications confidential.
In addition to responsibility for her own conduct, a lawyer is ultimately responsible for the work product of, and ethical conduct, of all subordinates whom the lawyer employs, including paralegals and associates.
Join Daniel Cotter as he covers what lawyers need to know about their general obligations under the RPCS, and their responsibilities as a supervisory lawyer, a subordinate lawyer, and nonlawyer assistance.
