Event Description

Deadline to Register: Thursday, October 10, 2019

More information coming soon!

Tech is complicated, but times have changed and lawyers have a duty to understand the features and `vulnerabilities of the systems that we all depend on. This program will take a broad ranging and dynamic look at the systems all around us and the new minimum tech-standards for a practicing attorney, and examine a lawyer’s ethical duties to be tech competent. Find out where lawyers have gotten into serious tech-trouble, and get straight-to-the-point tech advice, so you can stay ahead of the technology curve. Audience members will receive a cyber-security self-audit checklist to identify tech vulnerabilities in their law practice.

The ethical rules that will be addressed in this program are:

MRPC 1.1 Competence

MRPC Rule 1.6 Confidentiality
