The Impact of a Pandemic on Legal Ethics and the Use of Technology
Presented by: Jan L. Jacobowitz, JD & Robin Schard, JD
Do you Zoom? Does Alexis play music in your home office? Are you in the cloud?
These questions have become ubiquitous in the midst of the pandemic that has compelled the legal profession to dramatically increase its use of technology. Although not an early adopter of technology, the legal profession has been thrust into the tech world; yet, lawyers must continue to maintain the duties of competence, diligence, communication, and confidentiality.
This presentation will take a look at the technology adopted by many professionals, including attorneys and courts, in response to the pandemic, and it will explore the ethical issues that may arise when one wanders into unexplored tech terrain without the proper guidance. Issues such as maintaining confidentiality of information, increasing the security of communication, and what measures constitute diligence and reasonable efforts on the part of a lawyer will be discussed using some ripped from the headlines examples.
Presentation - 1:30 p.m. to 2:45 p.m.
