Description

The practice of law is a demanding one, even under the best of circumstances. The ongoing global pandemic has presented attorneys across North Carolina with a new challenge and has made meeting our ethical obligations to clients more complicated but more critical than ever. This session focuses on ethical obligations, including diligence, communication, confidentiality, and more, and reviews those obligations considering the health crisis. This program also includes a question-and-answer session with Ian Mance, Attorney and Legal Resource Associate with the School of Government’s Public Defense Education group, exploring pandemic-related issues many attorneys are now facing, including remote hearings, Americans with Disabilities Act accommodations, and the court’s authority over attorneys and case scheduling.
