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.

    This is an area of employment law that I do not know well. As a result, I was lost in the first 10 minutes or so because: 1. I didn't know the Jargon; and 2. the government action distinction eluded me.

    Excellent. While I groaned at Browning's 4:20 joke, be assured I will use it myself … with no attribution.

    Thoroughly enjoyed all of the topics presented,but especially the family & immigration law one since I have zero exposure to that practice area. All of the presenters were engaging and their senses of humor were most appreciated.

    Very well presented and infomative.

    The course had a nice selection of courses for the price.

    Great selection of topics.
