2:00 - 3:15p.m. Ethical Issues Implicated By Social Networking, Cloud Computing & Other New Technologies

As the legal profession becomes more digitally-driven, lawyers are facing challenging questions concerning when, where and how the "practice" and the "business" of law are interconnected. Some of these more novel questions will need to be considered within the context of the ever-blurring lines that result from lawyers assuming an online presence. Using real world examples and interactive hypotheticals, this program will explore practical issues relating to and including:

How competence and diligence have been redefined in the digital age;
Avoiding computer malpractice and inadvertent disclosure;
Spoliation of digital evidence and the ramifications of leaving a digital paper trail.
