Program Summary

In the contemporary landscape where technology profoundly shapes interpersonal interactions, attorneys find themselves increasingly reliant on cutting-edge communication methods and data management systems in their dealings with clients, adversaries, and judicial entities. Moreover, the exponential growth in electronically generated and stored client documents significantly impacts document review processes in investigative and litigation contexts. Consequently, attorneys are now bound by a mandated ethical obligation to comprehend the attributes and associated risks of various technologies employed in client representation and public communication. This ethical imperative presents a spectrum of challenges in implementation, spanning decisions regarding data storage, access protocols within and beyond office confines, and strategies for rectifying inadvertent errors. Notably, despite the traditional absence of technological instruction in legal education, the evolving landscape necessitates adaptation.

This webinar aims to delve into a myriad of technological hurdles, commencing with an exploration of the ethical guidelines imperative for attorneys to grasp and integrate into their professional practices concerning technological utilization. It will elucidate optimal approaches for information maintenance, dissemination, and risk mitigation, highlighting the intricacies surrounding inadvertent data disclosures and the ethical ramifications inherent in social media engagement. By internalizing these insights and prioritizing meticulous information management, legal practitioners can proactively mitigate client complaints and ethical infractions, mitigate the prospect of judicial penalties, and leverage technology to optimize client service delivery.

This course is co-sponsored with myLawCLE.

Key topics to be discussed:

  • Analysis of ethical regulations relevant to technology integration and their implications
  • Identification and mitigation of risks inherent in the utilization of technology
  • Examination of inadvertent information disclosure mechanisms and appropriate attorney responses
  • Evaluation of the influence of social media on legal practice and professional conduct
