The ABA created its Ethics 20/20 Commission in 2009 to consider solutions to ethical challenges arising from 21st Century technological realities. Recently, the Commission released draft proposals for revision of the ABA Model Rules in several areas that may be affected by modern technology: confidentiality (including unauthorized disclosures and hacking); client development through electronic media; and outsourcing. Steve Bennett, a partner at Jones Day, examines the Commission's ethics proposals and suggests practical solutions to the issues raised by the ABA.
