A pre-recorded streaming VIDEO replay of one session from the November 2017 live seminar, 38th Annual Construction and Public Contracts Law Seminar.

Cosponsored with the Construction Law and Public Contracts Section of the Virginia State Bar

This session uses hypotheticals to explore lawyers’ confidentiality and disclosure duties in the context of non-clients’ misconduct, including: determining what state's ethics rules apply; lawyers’ possible duty to disclose non-clients’ felonies or child abuse; corporate lawyers’ “reporting up” employee misconduct; friendly and adverse non-clients' false testimony; lawyers’ duty to report other lawyers’ misconduct (including lawyers subject to the duty, whom they must report, the reporting duty’s standards and timing, and the role of lawyers' confidentiality duty).
