Even if that “Luddite” lawyer is you… :o)

Technology Assisted Review (TAR) has been court approved for nearly seven years now and other technologies and approaches have been proven to save time and money while even improving quality within the discovery process. Yet, many lawyers still have yet to embrace these new technologies and approaches. Why, and what needs to happen to change things?  Today’s webcast will take a look at what needs to happen to help the “Luddite” legal professional learn to embrace technology.

Today at noon CST (1:00pm EST, 10:00am PST), CloudNine will conduct the webcast The “Luddite” Lawyer: Will Lawyers Ever Embrace Technology?. In this one-hour webcast that’s CLE-approved in selected states, we will discuss a lawyer’s ethical duty to understand technology, how to address today’s challenges and embrace approaches for addressing those technologies, pertinent case law regarding the use of technology and resources for more information.
