If you get a chance, check out my most recent post over on Avvo’s Lawyernomics blog. It is entitled: ABA Resolution on Technology and Client Development and it addresses six resolutions to submitted by the ABA Commission on Ethics 20/20 to the ABA House of Delegates for consideration this month.
The six resolutions stem from the commission’s study of the Model Rules of Professional Conduct in light of advances in technology and global legal practice developments. I suggest reviewing all of the six resolutions.
The post focuses on the Technology & Client Development resolution and discusses, at length, the proposed changes to the Model Rules of Professional Conduct suggested by the Ethics 20/20 Committee. I hope you find it interesting and helpful.
