The pandemic has forced us to re-imagine the practice of law: Our computers and phones have become our virtual offices and how we interact with clients, other attorneys and the judiciary has all changed.

• How do these changes impact our obligations as officers of the court to continue to practice in an ethical and professional manner?
• How do we protect the confidential data of our clients now stored in the cloud, on our computers and on our phones?
• What happens if you experience a client complaint during these changing times?

We will explore these and many other important ethical questions and concerns in our Annual Ethics Update 2021.
