This week’s top story is the release of the first ethics opinion to outline and address the issues raised by working from home due to the coronavirus crisis. We’re joined by an author of that opinion, Pennsylvania lawyer Daniel Siegel, to discuss its key points. Also this week: the first major virtual legal conference of the coronavirus era is held, ILTA’s CEO says its annual ILTACON conference is a go for August, and a contracts-technology company, saying corporations face a state of emergency, releases a free version of its product to help legal departments make their contracts organized and accessible.
