Many advocates recognize the potential for technology to help serve clients more efficiently and effectively, but are unsure of the ethical implications involved. This session offers an overview of the key ethical duties in play when attorneys use–or fail to use–technology in service delivery. Importantly, the focus is on providing practical resources and real-world examples of what you can and should be doing with technology.
- Exposing lawyers in the audience to the Rules of Professional Conduct that apply to their current and future/potential technology use.
- Giving practical advice through conversation, case studies, and a series of hypotheticals as to how they can use these technologies in an ethical manner so that they leave feeling empowered instead of scared.
This is a recording of a session from the 2017 Illinois Legal Advocates Conference held on Sept 7-8 at McCormick Place in Chicago.
- Hanna Kaufman, Lawyers Trust Fund of Illinois (moderator)
