Legal Tech Competence - Sunrise Sesssion

Event Description

Deadline to Register: Thursday, July 15, 2019

Comment 8 to Rule 1.1 says a lawyer should keep abreast of changes...including the benefits and risks associated with relevant technology.

The language of the rule is often a good starting point. Naturally, we might begin by asking, how does one keep abreast? Who’s going to tell me what therelevant technologymight be? But, the language of the rule was left intentionally vague because the pace of change makes it impossible to reasonably anticipate the relevant technology. So, instead, our starting point will be ethics stories which highlight how everyday professional obligations intersect with technology-enabled practices. Rather than firing off '60 tips in 60 minutes,' we'll focus on basic principles for managing the pace of change, learning about developing technologies, and staying competent in the legal tech arena.
