The lawyer who understands his or her client’s technology will stand out as a trusted counselor who can be given the most challenging and complex issues. It has been thirty years since Apple’s introduction of the original Macintosh computer started the personal computing revolution. The original floppy disk has been replaced by current thumb drives that can store an entire library on a single device. The availability of cheap and ubiquitous computing power is changing all aspects of business. As businesses evolve into new models, the legal issues they confront only multiply. A lawyer who does not understand the technology issues confronting his/her clients cannot be an effective counselor, since technology issues arise in clients’ daily contracts, business negotiations and litigation.

Lawyers, who often have no technical training, are required by court rules to report on their client’s technology infrastructure so that a judge may address electronic discovery issues. Technology issues and conflicts over IP impact many types of business disputes. Many discovery issues can be resolved without reliance on expensive outside experts, if counsel understands the underlying technology. Also, avoiding unnecessary disputes will speed up litigations and make them more cost-effective. Most important, success in the courtroom often depends on the most effective understanding and analysis of underlying technology. This unique program will give lawyers the necessary background to become more knowledgeable and effective advocates in technology-related matters.
