CLEonline.com is pleased to present a special online legal ethics program in which Professor David Hricik addresses the myriad of practical ways that technology creates ethical issues for practicing lawyers. Professor Hricik discusses both the potential major trends — artificial intelligence changing daily legal practice, and technological developments like driverless cars potentially reducing car accidents which could affect entire practice areas — as well as the more immediate concerns. The latter includes the risks of communicating with clients while they are at work, inadvertent transmission of email, metadata (“hidden” confidential information in things like Word documents), cloud storage, and dealing with negative on-line reviews. This presentation mixes humor, fear, and practical tips to give 3 solid hours of ethical issues that matter and are immediately relevant to your law practice. The course features streaming video and audio (as well as downloadable MP3 audio) presentations. You can access this presentation on demand at any time during the course of the seminar session.

    The speaker for this course is Professor David Hricik, of Mercer University School of Law in Macon, Georgia. Professor Hricik received his undergraduate degree magna cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa from the University of Arizona, where he majored in English. He received his law degree with honors from Northwestern University School of Law. He practiced with Baker Botts and small litigation boutiques from 1988 to 2002, litigating cases primarily involving patent infringement, legal malpractice, and general complex commercial matters. In 2002, he joined Mercer University School of Law, where he teaches legal ethics, patent law and litigation, federal civil procedure, and other courses. In 2012-13, he served as law clerk to Chief Judge Randall R. Rader at the Federal Circuit. He rejoined Mercer and also became Of Counsel to Taylor English Duma, LLP, where he continues to represent clients in patent and complex litigation.


    Professor Hricik was elected to the American Law Institute in 2016. He has authored the only treatise on ethical issues in patent litigation, and co-authored the only treatise on ethical issues in patent prosecution. In addition to serving leadership positions on ethics committees with the AIPLA and ABA and serving as an expert witness, he has written dozens of articles and given well over 100 presentations on issues at the intersection of ethics and patents. His articles and testimony have been adopted by both state and federal courts.  A more extensive biography for Professor Hricik may be found on the law school's website.
