Professor Ben Trachtenberg will present a CLE on legal ethics for the Boone County Bar Association on May 13. The CLE is in lieu of the regular May meeting and will be conducted via videoconference. Prof. Trachtenberg will cover ethical issues raised by the COVID-19 pandemic, including duties that lawyers have if they become ill, the duties of “diligence” and “competence” during an emergency, client communications during social distancing, and the perils and promise of remote work.
