In the first portion of this paper, I will try to give you an idea of a few of the specific ethical complications that have arisen or are anticipated because of electronic information production, storage, and communication. My search of the Georgia ethics decisions and opinions did not turn up instances where the Georgia Supreme Court or the State Disciplinary Board (which issued opinions prior to 1986) have ruled explicitly on any of these issues, but in today’s climate it is only a matter of time before at least some of these questions come up in Geogia. I will summarize what some other jurisdictions have decided when confronted with some of the complications of electronic information. The second part of the paper is an annotated list of some of the Internet resources that will help you stay up to date on the latest wrinkles in professional ethics.
