“Will Power:  Ethical Winners & Losers in the World of Trusts & Estates"

Presented by: Professor Jan L. Jacobowitz

 Lecturer in Law, Associate Director of the Center for Ethics & Public Service, and Director of the Professional Responsibility & Ethics Program (PREP), University of Miami’s School of Law

From Arethra Franklin to Jeffrey Epstein, trust and estate law is frequently in the headlines. And even when the famous and infamous are not involved, a trust and estate lawyer often travels on terrain littered with ethical landmines. Avoiding landmines requires posing the appropriate queries. When should a lawyer question a client’s testamentary capacity? Which conflicts among clients are not consentable? What are the exceptions to the rule that requires a lawyer to maintain client confidentiality? This CLE presentation will explore the answers to these questions and identify other legal ethics challenges that may confront lawyers in the practice of trust and estate law.


Cocktails and Dinner- 6:30 – 8:15 p.m.

"The First Thing We Do, Let's Hack All the Lawyers (and Accountants)!

Presented by:  Luis Salazar, Esq., Salazar Law

Hackers are increasingly targeting lawyers and other professionals. For political, financial, or criminal motives, hackers are exploiting security flaws and careless or untrained personnel to gain access to client’s most confidential secrets. This course will provide attendees with an informative overview of hackers and their motivations, as a means of raising awareness of the threat. The course will also review common areas of security weaknesses and potential lapses that hackers can exploit to gain access to confidential systems and information.

After establishing the broad parameters of the threats lawyers and other professionals face, the course will review the ethical requirements compelling these professionals to be informed and prepared against these threats. 

Finally, the attendees will be provided with actionable, concrete tips that they can implement immediately to improve their security posture.
