    May 2, 2012 – The next State Bar Practice411 Breakfast & Business: Eggs, Ethics and Answers half-day program comes to Hayward at the Flat Creek Inn & Suites on June 13.

    The first session, Ethics and Technology, is presented by State Bar Practice Management Advisor Nerino Petro.

    Several rules of professional conduct require lawyers to exercise great care in protecting electronic information. Because of these additional professional obligations, lawyers cannot rely on the standard of care applicable to other business persons. Lawyers must take special efforts to make sure their use of technology preserves confidentiality in order to avoid malpractice suits. Learn about hidden data, encryption, and many other pitfalls of technology.

    The second session speaker is to be announced
