Answer Bar: Maximizing Technology in Your Law Practice

Session 1: Competency, Confidentiality, Conflicts, and Technology - This session covers a wide range of problems that technology has created for lawyers. On the one hand, lawyers are obligated to use technology when it benefits their clients, but on the other, failure to use the technology competently can lead to ethical problems. This session analyzes issues from the mundane to the profound. Session 2: Technology Use and the Ethics that Come with It - The 2020 Covid 19 pandemic forced dramatic changes in practice styles, with most lawyers and their clients shifting from working in offices to working remotely from home.  Technology was at the center of these changes with “Zoom” meetings, “e-signing,” “e-filing” and related technologies playing an even more critical role in the practice of law. This panel of ethics experts will examine the issues raised by these practice shifts, including discussion of alternative technological methods of service in litigation and potential waiver of attorney-client privilege due to the misuse of technology. Session 3: Data Analytics: The Answer to Your Law Firm's Innovation Efforts - Learn how to easily kick-start your firm’s innovation efforts, close the gender pay gap (for you and your clients), and use data to reduce bias, improve inclusion as part of a diversity and inclusion initiative, and simultaneously use proven scientific methods to improve bottom-line profitability!  Session 4: Is Your Bot Bigoted? The Looming Risks of Bias in AI and ML - Join Heather and Amit as they explore the basics of AI and ML, the challenges in avoiding bias in these technologies, the current landscape of legal claims, and best practices for avoiding liability and harm. Join us to learn about this growing area, even if you are new to the world of AI and ML. Session 5: The Ethics of Social Media - The world of social media has engulfed us all. Not only has it transformed our society, but it has worked its way into every legal field as well. Discover the ethical issues facing you as attorneys—and that of your clients—in this social media age. Session 6: 30 Apps in 30 Minutes - A quick survey of useful apps and tech tips for lawyers, trust officers, and caregivers. Session 7: 30 More Apps in 30 Minutes - Hear an updated survey of new, useful apps, and tech tips for lawyers, trust officers, and caregivers.

    The third part of the course made me glad that I don't normally represent large corporations, The first two parts were both relevant to things I normally do.

    very good presentation

    I thought the presentation on attorney wellness was not very legal. By contrast, even though I am outside rather than in-house counsel, I thought the third presentation about situations presenting conflicts of interest for in-house lawyers was excellent.

Fraud is Now Legal in Texas (for Some People)

Three Texas intermediate appellate courts have held that corporate actors—directors, officers, managers, shareholders, and probably common employees and agents—are immune from personal liability for the fraud and misrepresentation these actors commit as long as the deceit relates to or arises from a contractual obligation of the corporation. Two and maybe three Texas appellate courts have rejected this immunity, and federal courts have also split. Courts adopting immunity claim the authority of a statute, but this immunity cannot be justified by the statute's language or history, and adopting it creates (probably unnoticed) results that confirm the legislature never intended it.
