Answer Bar: Technology for Litigators (Jan 2018)

Session 1: Artificial Intelligence and its Effect on the Legal Industry - AI is getting a lot of attention, creating fears and in many cases unrealistic expectations. Explore the reality of AI, how it practically can impact legal work flows, and how it can be a positive force that enables lawyers to do their jobs faster, cheaper and better for their clients. Session 2: Strategic Use of E-Discovery - Fewer than one out of a hundred cases are tried. Accordingly, discovery strategy is often more vital than trial strategy. Yet, strategic use of e-discovery garners little attention, perhaps because the fundamentals demand so much focus that there is little room for flourishes.

Review methods to deploy e-discovery strategically, mindful of our opponent’s fears, goals, and pain points … as well as our own.

Session 6: Social Media and Homeowners Insurance: Are Your Facebook Posts Covered? - Litigation stemming from social media activities has exploded in recent years. While the defendants in these cases often look to their homeowners insurance for protection, the typical policy gives insurers multiple ways out.

Session 8: Law Firm Data Security and the Ethical Duty of Technology Competence - As clients demand attorneys deliver legal services more efficiently by using technology it increases pressure to have technical knowledge and proficiency. Further, the American Bar Association and 28 states have created a model rule for the ethical duty of technology competence.
