Icon About This Course

This seminar presents lecture materials to guide participants on an interactive intellectual journey involving understanding the fundamental bases for pre-digital-era paradigms (i.e., analogue-era paradigms) regarding legal-ethics developed over centuries in order to better understand the impact of digital-age technology and practices on such paradigms and to explore ways for preserving such paradigms in ways that do not impair lawyers' ability to practice law ethically in the digital age. Given the fact that privacy is a sine qua non for attorney-client confidentiality and privilege, part of the seminar explores the impact of Carpenter v. US (in 2018) on constitutional aspects of privacy issues in ways potentially relevant to confidentiality and privilege issues not actually at issue in Carpenter but potentially affected by it.
