Instructor: Tina Ching
Technology has the potential to deliver more effective and efficient legal services allowing attorneys to focus more of their time on how to best serve their clients. It has changed the practice of law so much so that the majority of states now specifically require lawyers to maintain a basic level of technology competence. This course is intended to help students build the foundation needed to evaluate and understand the benefits and risks of using technology in the practice of law and maintain technology competence. Topics include ethical obligations, privacy and security, social media and marketing, and information literacy.
