Ethics Roadshow 2018 (Nashville):
Join TBA for the annual Ethics Roadshow! Coming to a city near you.
Many ethical issues can be complicated and nuanced. Often those issues are the ones that lend themselves to public presentation because of the layered issues and academic rigor with which they can be tackled. But, sometimes, it is important to step back and focus on the basics. Most instances in which situations really go sour and lawyers end up on the receiving end of discipline involve failures to comply with fundamental ethical obligations.
This year’s Roadshow is going to offer an opportunity to get “back-to-basics” and take a look at significant developments in the world of lawyers during 2018 focused on the five “Cs” that make up a recipe for ethical lawyering no matter what kind of law practice you have: the ethical duties of Competence, Confidentiality, (Avoiding) Conflicts, Communication, and Candor.
And, while past performance is no guarantee of future results (Candor!), at each city, attendees are likely to have slightly more fun and find themselves engaged and mildly more entertained than during most 3-hour discussions of attorney ethics.
Cities include: Chattanooga, Knoxville, Nashville, Memphis, Jackson and Johnson City.
Do I Need to Worry About the GDPR?:
This one-hour webcast seeks to present a basic overview of the far reaching EU regulation that when applicable changes the way organizations must collect, maintain, transfer and deal with personal information that can be used to identify actual and potential users of services or goods. The program addresses the circumstances under which organizations operating outside the EU might nevertheless be required to comply with the Regulation, the risk/benefit analysis with respect to whether limiting actions might be taken by such organizations to avoid compliance requirements and, ultimately, what are the basic considerations involved where compliance is required and cannot be avoided.
