On-Demand Webcast - New ABA Rule Amendments: Changing Attorneys’ Relationship with Technology

Created on October 10, 2012


In today’s fast-moving digital age, competently and diligently representing clients means understanding technology, both its capabilities and limitations. Acknowledging this swiftly evolving legal landscape, the American Bar Association (ABA) recently approved new amendments to the Model Rules of Professional Conduct and associated commentary to address technology’s growing role in the legal profession. Among other things, the amendments broadened the definition of client correspondence to include “electronic communication” and revised the definition of “competent representation” to include understanding the benefits and risks associated with technology.

In this webcast, experts examined these new amendments and considered their potential impact.

Speakers:

John Barkett, Esq., Partner, Shook Hardy & Bacon LLP Seth Row, Esq., Partner, Parsons Farnell & Grein, LLP Scott Giordano, Esq., Corporate Technology Counsel, Exterro, Inc.
