The Illinois Rules of Professional Conduct includes language that a competent lawyer "keep abreast of changes in the law and its practice, including the benefits and risks associated with relevant technology." When the updates to the Rules took effect January 2016 a lot of attention was focused on the risks that law firms were exposed to because of technology. However, statistics from disciplinary complaints and malpractice claims paint a clear picture of how technology, implemented and used effectively, can help reduce risks from common errors like missed deadlines, blown statute of limitations, mis-communication, conflicts of interest, fee disputes, trust account reconciliation and substantive errors. Come to this session to learn about how law office technology including calendaring/docketing, document assembly, time keeping, version control, conflicts of interest databases and more can help law firms reduce risk AND practice better.
