Investigations by lawyers are an essential element of most litigation. Lawyers investigate the parties and the facts underlying the case through the use of third-party investigators, online searches, obtaining public records, seeking the production of electronic communications, including text messages, and much more. Also, lawyers sometimes need to investigate their own clients – to assure themselves of the veracity of certain representations or when the lawyer suspects the client may be actively misleading the lawyer. These investigations are not without risk. Ethics rules limit what lawyers can do and say, and how the work product of these investigations may be used. This program will provide you with a practical guide to ethical issues when lawyers conduct investigations.
