Law and Technology - The Ethics of the Practice of Law in the 21st Century

In this session, Todd Scott and Joe Kaczrowski cover several topics of concern for lawyers starting or operating a law practice today. What are the practical applications of the tech competence requirement in the Rules of Professional Conduct? How can technology help lawyers compete in a crowded and evolving legal marketplace? This discussion includes:

- The efficient practice of law; what actions can law firms take in response to the “missing six hours” identified in Clio’s Legal Trends Report
- Law firm security; what is the standard (and ethical obligation) for a solo practitioner running a practice today
- Cloud computing; what is a lawyer’s ethical duty and is it more secure than doing things in-house
- Payment processing and trust accounting; what systems are available and how do these technologies and payment types fit with IOLTA and a lawyer’s professional responsibilities
- Document management and storage; what is the ethical standard for cloud storage and sharing solutions
- Document assembly and automation; improving efficiency, removing human error and reducing liability
- Social media; how can a lawyer manage his or her online presence and what are the standards for law firm websites and social media use

This CLE is approved for credit through December 27, 2019.
