Technology Always Outruns the Law

It seems like technological changes are occurring at a breakneck pace. While many attorneys are having a hard enough time keeping up with their clients and case load, they now have the added responsibility of keeping up with technology, integrating it into their practice and making sure they do not violate any of their ethical responsibilities. Our panel of experts will discuss the latest developments in technology that are affecting the way attorneys practice law, keep their client information safe and interact with clients, witnesses, adversaries and the courts. They will focus on where we are; where we are going; how you can be sure not to be left behind; and above all, how NOT to let technological changes cost you your career. This is one program no attorney can afford to miss!!!!
