A tipping point has been reached on the issues of legal ethics, secure communications, and data security. From criminal defense attorneys representing domestic clients, to transactional attorneys engaged in trade negotiations, all practice areas are impacted by the new political and technological reality of multi-state mass surveillance technology. This CLE will assist attorneys in understanding how to ethically engage with information technology in this new and challenging climate.

The course will be facilitated by Jonathan Stribling-Uss (’12) and is co-sponsored by The Constitutional Communications Project and the Bertha Justice Institute at the Center for Constitutional Rights.

This two-credit course will offer 1.5 Professional Practice credits and 0.5 Ethics & Professionalism credit.

Course sign-in will begin at 6:00PM and the program will begin promptly at 6:30PM.

Please note registration is required for all CLE programs.
