January 29, 2014

**Please note the new date.**

Effective November 21, 2013, the Rules of Professional Conduct (“RPC”) governing the Pennsylvania practice of law have changed. The Supreme Court’s order of October 22, 2013, adopts in large measure a series of changes proposed by the American Bar Association House of Delegates in 2012. The rules changed include changes to responsibility when dealing with co-counsel and subcontracting counsel and non-lawyer assistance, the use of technology, detection and addressing of conflicts of interest, and confidentiality.

The changes also endeavor to codify and address several long-standing issues, including when a duty to a prospective clients who consult with counsel, the handling of all electronic client data and communications and metadata. 

The session is focused on issues pertaining to in-house counsel, focusing on the changes in the rules. While the session will briefly touch on issues related to private practice lawyers only, such as changes related to legal marketing, private practice attorneys should look closely at those rule changes elsewhere as they will not be covered in depth.
