Below is a small sampling of interesting and relevant programs available for Made To Order.
OMG! :-0 Technology, Social Media & Professionalism
Technology has changed the way we live, interact with each other and practice law, for better and for worse.
Communication is now quick, informal and sometimes sent without appropriate forethought, security or consideration of its consequences.
As lawyers, we must master the use of technology because it gives us a valuable tool to aid our clients and to build our practices.
We must also be fully aware of the bounds of appropriate professional conduct for lawyers, their clients, adversaries and judges in the "virtual" world or face the risk of disciplinary sanctions.
