Lawyer use of technology, in both their professional and personal lives, is inescapable, and frequently those two worlds blend and give rise to substantial ethical issues. It’s difficult to disconnect from constant digital communications. Lawyers talk to, email, text and otherwise communicate with clients on smartphones, tablets, and social media. Frequently, these and laptops are connected to public or at best semi-secure networks, despite the fact they are used to carry sensitive and often confidential information. The ease of technology obscures its complexity – a complexity lawyers are required, as a duty of competence, to understand before they use it. This program will provide you with a roadmap through the maze of ethical issues that occur when lawyers use technology in their lives and practices.
