Description

It was the best of times, It was the worst of times. One thing is for certain, 2020 is a time of change. While travel restrictions and stay-home orders may make the world feel like its retreating to the stone ages, it has actually been a period of rapid technological evolution.

In this program we will explore technology that enables lawyers to practice in this new virtual world including equipment, software, platforms such as zoom and more that may aid in the way we connect and interact with clients, colleagues, and the Court. We will also review the ethical obligations and considerations that go hand-in-hand with these tools.
