This program will focus on two controversial ethics issues affecting tort litigators: the impact of social media on litigation and the solicitation of corporate witnesses after Rivera v. Lutheran Medical Center. Using real life examples, the speakers will discuss social media issues that impact a lawyer's conduct from pre-litigation through trial.

The speakers will also discuss the options corporate defendants have in contacting and/or soliciting representation of corporate employees or witnesses, as well as the remedies available to plaintiffs if the solicitation is deemed improper.

Earn 2 CLE credits in areas of Ethics and Professionalism.
