Description

Law firms in New York State began working remotely in Mid-March due to the pandemic and this trend will likely continue even after it ends.. Yet, there are a number of ethical issues that arise when most of the lawyer and non-lawyer staff work remotely.

Hear from noted ethicist Ronald Minkoff as he discusses the distinct characteristics of practicing remotely that require additional considerations, including a discussion of NYCLA Ethics Opinion 754 (2020) that was recently issued by NYCLA's Committee on Professional Ethics, of which he is co-chair.
