Description

The adage that all publicity is good is not always true. The press is filled with stories about how lawyers end up in hot water by filing improperly-redacted documents, disclosing confidential information to family and friends, and allowing technological ignorance to prejudice clients.
 
This program will highlight some infamous technology errors lawyers have made that ran afoul of the Model Rules of Professional Conduct - particularly Rule 1.1 (Comment 8), Rule 1.6, and Rules 5.2 and 5.3.  This webinar will also demonstrate how to avoid some of the most common technology errors that lawyers can make when using popular software such as Microsoft Office and Adobe Acrobat.
