Technology is rapidly transforming the practice of law. From data security and online information exchange to social media and artificial intelligence tools, technology has become an integral part of the legal profession. The use of technology not only presents a new set of challenges but, for better or for worse, can also have a real impact on attorney mental health.
Featured speaker Ed Walters — CEO and co-founder of Fastcase, one of the largest online law libraries in the world — has embraced technology as a tool to help lawyers practice faster and smarter. Drawing from his extensive experience, Ed discusses the myriad of ethical and professional challenges that lawyers face in today’s technological world.
Also, participate in an engaging dialogue of hypotheticals as panelists examine cutting-edge issues involving legal ethics and technology, such as safeguarding client confidentiality and using cryptocurrency and artificial intelligence tools for law practice.
