About the Program

An experienced panel of Connecticut lawyers will discuss the intersection of professionalism, ethics, and technology. Why? Technology touches everything from legal accounting and advertising to document management and digital privacy. While “tech competence” is required in a plurality of US jurisdictions, including Connecticut, the term’s exact definition is anything but an ever-fixed mark. For this reason, we are pleased to host a panel discussion with members of the Standing Committee on Professional Ethics, the Statewide Grievance Committee, Statewide Bar Counsel, practitioners in the areas of digital privacy and legal ethics, and members of the local judiciary.

You Will Learn

  • How technology plays a role in trust account maintenance and compliance 
  • Technological considerations for your multi-jurisdiction practice 
  • Legal advertising in the technological age 
  • The process of requesting informal ethics opinions from the Standing Committee on Professional Ethics 
  • The present state (and value!) of virtual hearings in Connecticut 
  • The ethical role of technology in digital privacy compliance and cybersecurity risk mitigation 

Who Should Attend

This workshop is designed to help lawyers and other legal professionals at solo and small law firms consider the broader role technology plays in their legal and business operations, but all members of the Connecticut bar are welcome.
