Free Webinar: Tech Competency for Lawyers

Print This Post

4 July 2016


Clio 200Clio, the world’s leading cloud-based legal practice management system, present a free hour long webinar on how lawyers can achieve simple technological competency.

Since 2012, Twenty-one US states have adopted rules that require technical competency among lawyers. What does this mean? Lawyers are required to not only keep up with changes to the law and its practice but also the wide range of technology that can be used in the delivery of their services.

This means staying abreast of the potential risks—and benefits—associated with any technology they use.

While the ethical opinions of many states focus on increasingly complex computing processes—like metadata analysis and e-discovery—lawyers should also consider the untapped gains offered by the technology they already use.

Word processing software, email services, and practice management tools all offer features that most lawyers have yet to adopt.

Join Clio Lawyer in Residence Joshua Lennon and D. Casey Flaherty as they explore how to achieve simple technological competency and how you and your clients will benefit. Learn to leverage your firm’s technology to:

  • Evaluate your current technology knowledge
  • Explore key features in the software you already own
  • Create continuous technology training at your law firm

RSVP now for Tech Competency for Lawyers, taking place on Tuesday 12th July at 6pm GMT.

Be careful you do not leave anything behind: will we see the end of chambers?

Charles Feeny

Experience of practice by digital support suggests that working practices will become much more informal and spontaneous, not requiring support by specific entities or even contractual arrangements. This is likely to be particularly true of the Bar, which is or should be a profession focusing on individuals. The future of the Bar is more likely to resemble a library as seen in Scotland and Ireland – albeit an electronic library – rather than the traditional chambers structure.
