Paralegal's Guide to Ethical Use of Technology

Understand the ethical rules that apply to the use of technology and electronic information.

In an increasingly digital world, law offices and legal departments are inundated with information in ways that were never contemplated by existing ethics rules and common law office processes. It most often falls to paralegals and administrative staff to craft policies and procedures that protect the attorneys' duties of competence, diligence, professional integrity, and client confidentiality. This topic will help you understand common pitfalls and best practices for gathering, managing, protecting and sharing electronic information.
