Technology advances quickly and it's not easy to keep up with it while also trying to practice law. This seminar will define and explain the technologies that can help any lawyer solve problems, improve client service and make life easier. Learn about the essential software and hardware tools that can help you protect client confidentiality, organize case information, manage your practice more efficiently and improve your systems.
1 CLE / 1 E - Tuesday, February 8; 12:15 P.M. - 1:15 P.M. - Live Webcast Only
Addressing security within your office is only half the battle! Unfortunately, your clients often don’t know how to protect their own data and security is definitely a team sport. Therefore, it’s important to educate your clients about proper security processes and make sure they are okay with the risks associated with electronic communication and storage (if you intend to use them). Nothing is without risk, but by exercising good practices, you and your client can fully enjoy all the benefits of technology and electronic collaboration.
In this session, we’ll discuss your communication and confidentiality duties under Rules of Professional Conduct, security issues you should address in engagement agreements, security measures both you and your clients should employ, client portals, email encryption, virtual private networks and other best practices. Finally, we’ll cover the breach notification laws and how they impact lawyers.
1 CLE (NLS) - Tuesday, February 15; 12:15 P.M. - 1:15 P.M. - Live Webcast Only
Imagine if you could electronically organize and store all documents (including electronic documents created in-house, documents your office has received, faxes, e-mail, and attachments) in a client/matter-centric manner which is accessible at any time, whether they’re in or out of the office. Imagine further that all of those files could be searched by any imaginable criteria and therefore, nothing could be lost. We'll show you how to make this a reality in your practice.
1 CLE / 1 E - Tuesday, February 22; 12:15 P.M. - 1:15 P.M. - Live Webcast Only
A high percentage of malpractice practice claims and practice management problems are caused by communication breakdowns. Communication problems create dissatisfied clients, decrease productivity, cause conflict internally and externally. The growing number of communication channels only compounds the problem. We'll explain technologies and techniques that will help you improve communication, lower your stress, improve your service, generate happier clients, and lower your malpractice risk.
