Since its inception, NYCLA has been at the forefront of most legal debates in the country. We have provided legal education for more than 40 years.
Lawyers and technology have had an uneasy relationship. Although some lawyers are early adapters, others feel that technology is not important to the practice of law. But this attitude is no longer harmless conservatism. Avoiding the new technology may lead to violations of lawyers’ ethical duties of competence and confidentiality.
The pervasiveness of electronic data in all aspects of commercial and personal life and its easy transmission through the Internet have not only fundamentally altered the manner in which lawyers interact with clients and with one another, but potentially expose confidential and proprietary information to rapid and unauthorized dissemination. Although lawyers may have been comforted by ethical opinions finding their casual use of unencrypted e-mail or social media and nonuse of cloud computing appropriate in the past, they can no longer rely on those opinions given the dramatically altered security risks of today.
Join us for the second program in our ongoing series which will identify and help you learn and put into practice the new technology. Only then can you effectively and competently use e-mail, the Internet, social media and cloud computing. Our tech savvy panel will take you on a tour through the new technologies. We will discuss how the internet, email, cloud and social media work in simple terms, that even non-technical practitioners, will understand.
You will also learn “hands-on” how to:
– Install and use free “email” encryption tools
– Choose and use secure “cloud storage” for documents
– Proper use of “social media”” for lawyers
