The Ethics of Remote Work
The COVID-19 pandemic had the ancillary—and perhaps permanent—effect of accelerating and normalizing work-from-home trends. As more in-house counsel transition to full-time remote work, they must familiarize themselves with critical ethics rules impacted by remote practice, including how to telecommute without committing the unauthorized practice of law.
Please join Thomson Reuters and presenters Monique Abrishami (Partner, Levy Firestone Muse) and Amy E. Richardson (Partner, Harris, Wiltshire & Grannis LLP) for this one-hour webinar.
Presenters will discuss:
- What the virtual practice of law is
- How the virtual practice of law differs from telecommuting
- The exception to unauthorized-practice-of-law rules that applies to corporate counsel in most states
- Ethical considerations that arise concerning competence, confidentiality, and supervision in a remote work environment.
In doing so, we will explore ABA Model Rules 1.6, 5.2, 5.3, and 5.5, as well as recent ABA Formal Opinion 495 (2020).
