Technology now allows lawyers to work from anywhere and at any time – from home, the road or in public places.  Smartphones and tablets allow sophisticated communications from anywhere.  Files can easily be stored in “the Cloud” and accessed from anywhere.  But all this convenience comes with real and substantial ethical issues – the confidentiality of client communications, the security of files, preserving the attorney-client privilege, and much more.  Lawyers have a duty of competence to understand how commonplace personal and law office technology impacts their ethical duties. This program will provide you with a practical guide to significant ethical issues when lawyers use common personal and law office technology in their law practices.
