Sue Friedberg, shareholder and co-chair of the firm's Cybersecurity and Data Privacy group, will speak on a panel titled "Legal Ethics for Media Lawyers: Current Issues" at Practising Law Institute's Communications Law in the Digital Age 2018 program. The discussion will address the following questions:
Are there any ethical constraints (left) on trying a case in the media?
When can a lawyer disclose confidential information that has become "generally known”?
What are the ethical responsibilities of lawyers who travel internationally and whose electronic devices may be subject to search at borders?
What are the confidentiality obligations of lawyers who blog and tweet?
When does the lawyer have a duty to inform a client--or a former client--of a mistake in the representation?
