The EDRM Model Code of Conduct (MCoC) is now available for public comment at http://www.edrm.net/004
Published on July 9, 2011 and available at both http://www.edrm.net/projects/model-code-of-conduct and http://www.edrm.net/004, the MCoC addresses five key principles:
- Conflicts of Interest,
- Sound Process, and
- Security and Confidentiality.
Each principle focuses on the duties of service providers and is accompanied by a corollary focusing on corresponding expectations for their clients.
This initial draft of the MCoC is open to all for public comment through September 30, 2011.
You may post comments at http://www.edrm.net/004
All feedback will be reviewed by the EDRM MCoC team at the EDRM Mid-Year meeting, held in Saint Paul on October 19-20, 2011. The first version of the MCoC will be published in January 2012, prior to the LegalTech NY conference.
