E-Ethics for E-Discovery: Considerations and Solutions for the E-Practitioner
Discovery of electronically stored information (ESI) implicates a number of ethical issues for the practitioner. E-discovery raises E-ethical considerations going beyond those faced in the physical document world. In this electronic presentation the presenters will examine the seeming tension among the obligations to protect metadata and not to "mine" for metadata in relation to the E-discovery obligation not to delete metadata. The presenters will also discuss additional ethical and professional duties of the practitioner in the E-discovery context.

What Every Lawyer Needs to Know About the Fight Against Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing
The legal profession is under considerable pressure from both domestic and international sources to implement effective risk-based measures to prevent money laundering and terrorist financing. In October 2008, the world’s leading standard setter for anti-money laundering and counter-terrorist financing policies, the Financial Action Task Force, adopted risk based guidance for the legal profession. The American Bar Association, in consultation with numerous ABA Sections and specialty bar associations, has developed voluntary good practices guidance to implement the 2008 risk based guidance. At the same time, Congress is considering legislation that may impose mandatory, or a “rules based,” approach on the legal profession. This program, which is of interest to all Florida attorneys, will trace the development of the 2008 guidance and the good practices guidance, update outreach efforts with Congress and the Obama Administration and other key stakeholders, and distill the new reality of implementing a voluntary risk-based client due diligence regime within your law firm in light of these developments.
