Technology has changed everything lawyers do. You market your expertise through firm web sites, e-newsletters, and social media. You communicate with clients and opposing counsel via email and mobile devices. You receive, edit, store and transmit client files electronically. You may even file documents with the courts electronically. The first ethical duty of a lawyer is to practice competently, which duty includes understanding and managing technology in the law office and, while using it, ensuring client confidences. In a firm of any size this can be a tremendous challenge - even more so in small firms. This program will provide you with a practical guide to major ethical issues particular to smaller law firms in choosing and using technology in law practice.
