In early March 2010, Scott Smiley, Jr. was invited by the Washington Bar Association’s Young Lawyers Division to present at their Express CLE #13 in Bremerton, WA, concerning Attorney Free Speech Rights on the Internet and its intersection with Ethic Rules. We published the presentation’s slides through SlideShare.net, and were excited to see the presentation selected this morning as a “Featured Presentation,” and promoted on the site’s index page.
The presentation summary is as follows:
Slides from presentation given to the Washington Bar Association’s Young Lawyers Division at their Express CLE #13 in Bremerton, WA. The presentation focused on the problems attorneys face when trying to reconcile ethic rules with how they use the Internet. The presentation reviews rules pre-existing the web, and how they may be applied to web situations, as well as new rules passed in states like Louisiana, Florida and New York that specifically address the Internet.
