Managing Risks, Benefits of Technology Sept. 14

BlackBerrys, netbooks, laptops, USB drives, iPhones, cloud computing and virtual law offices all can provide great benefits for attorneys, including dramatic improvement in efficiency and virtually unlimited access to information.

This intersection of technology and law also raises ethical concerns. On Tuesday, Sept. 14, the Professional Responsibility Committee, Young Lawyers Division and Law Practice Management Committee will sponsor a program to discuss the issues raised by these new high-tech tools, as well as potential solutions that allow lawyers to identify risks before using the latest and greatest technology.

Daniel J. Siegel, a local attorney who operates the Law Offices of Daniel J. Siegel, LLC and president of Integrated Technology Services, LLC, will be the featured speaker for this program, "Managing the Risk and Benefits of Technology in Your Law Practice." Siegel is a former co-chair of the Law Practice Management Division's Technology Committee.

Registration and lunch begin at 12 p.m. in the 11th floor Conference Center of Bar Association headquarters, 1101 Market St. Click here to purchase lunch. The program begins at 12:30 p.m. One ethics CLE credit is available. Visit pbi.org for registration information.
