The COVID-19 pandemic has brought on new challenges for attorneys and the practice of law on a range of matters, from attorney-client confidentiality, communicating effectively while working remotely, and abiding by existing ethical responsibilities. The B​BA Ethics Committee reflected on these challenges and put together a set of guidelines meant to help Massachusetts attorneys navigate the new legal landscape. Join the co-chairs of the Committee for a discussion on their recently published Ethics Committee Advisory. In this webinar, the authors of the Advisory will discuss the guidelines, offer tips for practicing ethically during this time, and answer questions from attendees.
