One of the nation’s top ethics lawyers, Tom Spahn, will be presenting an entertaining and interactive ethics course during the morning of Thursday, September 21, in the 9th floor conference room at the U.S. Courthouse in Jacksonville. The course, “Confidentiality – Non-Clients’ Misunderstanding and Mistakes” (applying for 1.5 hours Florida Bar Ethics CLE), will be an interactive program that uses hypotheticals to explore lawyers’ confidentiality and disclosure duties in the context of non-clients’ misunderstandings and mistakes. Among other things, the program will address: the difference between ethics and professionalism; dealing with unrepresented persons who may misunderstand a lawyer’s role; negotiation ethics (including adversaries’ factual or legal misunderstanding, substantive mistakes, or scrivener’s errors); litigators’ disclosure duties in the face of litigation, adversaries’ or courts’ misunderstanding, mistakes, or scrivener’s errors. Check-in and breakfast begin at 8:30; program begins at 8:45.
