The pace of change is rapid, including in the area of legal ethics. As a result, the future is nigh but also now. A handful of states have either already adopted, or are seriously considering, fundamental changes to ethics rules that would fundamentally reshape the landscape for legal services. These changes have at their core re-examination of rules regarding how lawyers and people who aren’t licensed to practice law interact, including RPC 5.4 and RPC 7.2. This year’s Roadshow offers a crash course in what all of this is about, and what you can expect as to these potential fundamental changes to the landscape. Along the way, we also include a discussion of ethics rules that remain important to know and comply with because they will remain important whatever the future looks like.
