Columbus: Uphold Your Firm's Professional Duty To Be Tech Savvy

When:  Oct 25, 2018 from 12:00 to 13:30 (ET)


The American Bar Association (ABA) recently adopted a change to the Model Rules of Professional Conduct to clarify that lawyers have a duty to be competent not only in the law and its practice but also in technology. To Model Rule 1.1 (attorneys must provide competent representation), the ABA has added Comment 8 stating that maintaining technological competence is part of meeting that duty.

We will outline a step-by-step process for creating a learning culture in your firm, so technology training is an integral part of providing competent representation to your clients.

We'll cover topics including:

  • Get buy-in from management
  • Form a technology committee
  • Administer individualized assessments
  • Increase attorney participation
  • Create customized training
  • Offer training that meets people where they are
  • Award certifications or other competitive incentives (which can also tout the firm's technological advantages)

If your firm hopes for continued success in the future, it is imperative to create a learning culture today. We'll prepare you to achieve the tech learning goals needed for long-term firm success.
