Titled “Ethical Issues Unique to the Consumer Space and Class Actions,” the discussion will cover a range of topics including conflicts of interest in class actions; whistleblower bounties; ethical limits on contacting former employees; the ABA's recently adopted anti-discrimination rule for lawyers; and ethical issues in the use of social media by lawyers and/or clients. Joining Ms. Ray on the panel will be retired Judge James Holderman. The panel will be held at 3:30 p.m. on May 5, the second day of the two-day Institute at Hotel Allegro, 171 W.
