Learn the essential elements of clear communications and tips for assuring clear and effective communications with your clients, colleagues, and staff.
Rule 1.4 of the ABA Model Rules of Professional Conduct directs attorneys to “keep the client reasonably informed” about their matters through clear and timely communications. Lawyers who are busy litigating, deal-making, or otherwise advising clients, however, don't always communicate as well as they should with clients, other lawyers, or their own staff.
Their cryptic notes, hurried questions, and unclear instructions can lead to:
• assignments without context
• unfounded assumptions
• failure to provide enough time for clear communications
• hoarding of tasks until the last minute
Attendees will learn how more effective communication can help them avoid:
• wasted time
• rushed jobs
• failure to receive informed consent (as defined by Rule 1.0 of the ABA Model Rules of Professional Conduct) due to last minute communications
