Ediscovery news: Exterro Webcast to Address Amendments to ABA Ethics Rules
Exterro Inc, a provider of unified e-discovery software, today announced a new webcast which will examine the recent amendments to the American Bar Association’s (ABA) Model Rules of Professional Conduct. New ABA Ethics Rule Amendments: Changing Attorneys’ Relationship with Technology featuring litigators John Barkett, Esq, partner at Shook Hardy & Bacon, LLP, and Seth Row, Esq, partner at Parsons Farnell & Grein LLP, will examine the impact the amendments could have on e-discovery practices, particularly as they pertain to an attorney’s understanding and use of technology and attorney-client relationships. The webcast will air on September 4, 2012, at 1 p.m. ET.
About the ABA Amendments
The extensive ABA amendments are designed to address technology’s growing role in the legal profession. The amendments have broadened the definition of client correspondence to include “electronic communication” and have re-defined competent representation to include that lawyers need to understand the benefits and risks associated with technology. Barkett and Row will analyze the amendments and discuss their potential impact on e-discovery practices and the attorney-client relationship.
