UPCOMING EVENTS


DBA Luncheon: "Ethics and Professional Responsibility in the Digital World"

 

"Ethics and Professional Responsibility

in the Digital World"

 

presented by

 

Gary Williams

Schaefer Williams

 

 

While the ethical obligations of attorneys may evolve with prudent deliberateness, change in the digital world is rapid and disruptive. Changes in technology, clients' heightened expectations of responsiveness, modes of information transmission and storage, the security (or insecurity) of information all expose lawyers to new types of ethical violations and errors and business practices. What are the ethical challenges of new technologies? How are these new technologies changing the necessities of attorneys' competency in maintaining personal and business digital integrity and security?
