Technology’s Impact on the Everyday Practice of Law

In the technology field, “Moore’s law” states that capacity doubles approximately every two years. This pace of change, the reduction in the use of paper and the corresponding increase in electronic data and “cloud storage” have given rise to a multitude of issues that significantly impact the everyday practice of law and must be considered by both law firms and lawyers. This session covers best practices to minimize risks to clients and minimize malpractice risks to lawyers. Topics include preservation or loss of the attorney/client privilege, the disclosure of confidential information or data protected by privacy laws, the use of multiple email accounts, forwarded and “reply all” emails, the use or prohibition of the use of social media, the encryption of documents, the scrubbing of metadata from documents, and e-discovery.
