LexisNexis® presents a Complimentary Webinar: “Attorney-Client Privilege and the Corporate Witness”
| WEBINAR (95 Minutes)
Live Date: Nov. 20th, 2013
The Attorney-Client privilege is sacrosanct—the most sacred of all of the legal privileges. However, is that privilege any different when it is between the lawyer and the corporate representative? What impact does today’s social media–conditioned society have, if any, on the privilege? Who hasn’t received that e-mail with the attached report to some co-defendant’s client? The inadvertent fax? It is much too easy to hit “Reply All” without looking to see who is on the chain. Does that waive the privilege? Is the privilege waived if the corporate representative discusses the meeting with the corporation’s lawyer on social media?
This Webinar will explore:
• How the corporate relationship impacts the privilege
• How Social Media impacts the privilege
• How electronic communications impacts the privilege
*CLE credit will not be given for viewing the “Attorney-Client Privilege and the Corporate Witness” Webinar recording

LexisNexis® presents a Complimentary Webinar: Mobile Privacy: An Overview of Legal and Legislative Developments including the proposed APPS Act and BYOD
| WEBINAR (95 Minutes)
Date: Wednesday, May 8, 2013
Time: 2 – 3:35 P.M. ET
(11 A.M. PT)
Duration: 95 minutes
As the ubiquitous smartphones, tablets, and other mobile devices increasingly dominate the communications landscape, legislators and regulators are honing in on mobile data gathering methods and user privacy concerns. The trend signifies increased regulation of mobile app developers and companies that collect consumer data via mobile apps, as new statutes and regulatory proposals are rolled out at both the state and federal levels.
Failure to comply can be costly. In December 2012, California Attorney General Kamala Harris sued Delta Airlines under the state’s 8-year-old Online Privacy Protection Act, alleging that the airline is breaking state law by failing to warn users that Delta is collecting sensitive information each time customers use the “Fly Delta” mobile application. The penalty could be as much as $2,500 per download.
And more recently, on January 16, 2013, in a push to address mobile privacy protection, Georgia Congressman Hank Johnson released a draft of the Application Privacy, Protection, and Security Act of 2013 or APPS Act.
As the regulatory and legislative oversight of mobile apps continues to accelerate, join us on Wed., May 8, at 2 P.M. ET and benefit from the insights of our panel of experts during the complimentary CLE Webinar, “Mobile Privacy: Legal and Legislative Developments. “
