One of the most sacrosanct duties for lawyers is the duty of confidentiality. A client has a right to trust that his or her lawyer will not improperly divulge information about the representation. This trust is one of the hallmarks of the client-lawyer relationship. In this surprisingly funny webinar, legal humorist Sean Carter** will explore the contours of the rules concerning lawyer confidentiality.

In particular, this webinar will cover:

  • The general duties of confidentiality to prospective, current and past clients;
  • How and when clients can waive their right to confidentiality
  • The circumstances in which lawyers may ethically disclose client information
  • The duty to avoid even inadvertent and unauthorized disclosures
  • The consequences of breaching confidentiality

    While issues of attorney-client privilege and work product may arise in this webinar, the main focus will be on confidentiality as required by the ethics rules.

**Sean Carter is a Harvard Law grad, who spent a decade practicing securities law before leaving the practice of law to pursue a career as the country's foremost Humorist at Law.

Since then, Mr. Carter has crisscrossed the country delivering comedic professional educational seminars for more than 350 legal organizations in three dozen states. His presentation topics run the gamut from legal ethics to stress management to diversity. Yet, all of his presentations have one thing in common -- humor and plenty of it.

In fact, in 2003, Mr. Carter was dubbed "America's Funniest Lawyer" by The Radio and Television Interview Report.

Finally, Sean lives in Mesa, Arizona with his wife and four sons.
