With the recent changes to ABA Model Rule of Professional Conduct 1.1, lawyers are expected to "keep abreast of changes in the law and its practice, including the benefits and risks associated with relevant technology." That can be a daunting task even for the most tech savvy lawyers. How do you know which technologies are "relevant" and which are mere distractions? In this program, experts from the legal technology field will share their insights on the latest developments and trends in technology, exploring both the benefits new technology offers and the risks lawyers must confront.
