Catalyst to Host CLE Webinar on the Legal Ethics of Technology Assisted Review

By on . Posted in Webinar

We invite you to join us for free webinar,  The Legal Ethics of Technology Assisted Review (TAR) on Wednesday, Dec. 13th. This program is accredited for one hour of ethics CLE credit. Our speakers are Bob Ambrogi, John Tredennick and Tom Gricks.

More than 28 states now say lawyers have an ethical duty to be competent in technology. Bob Ambrogi, keeps a running list of these states on his Law Sites blog. The federal courts also have implemented new proportionality rules governing your duty to produce documents.

All of this comes as lawyers everywhere grapple with thorny ethical issues concerning the use of cloud technology, storing privileged documents with outside vendors, and relying for key tasks on smart but non-human computer algorithms.

This webinar will help you sort through the issues you should consider when using TAR.

  • Wednesday, Dec. 13 | 2 p.m. ET
  • 1.0 ethics credit CLE approved in Colorado. See details on the registration page for jurisdictions with reciprocity.

Our speakers will cover these questions:

  • What does the duty to be technologically competent mean?
  • Can I ethically use the cloud to manage privileged documents?
  • What are my ethical responsibilities in hiring outside vendors?
  • What are the implications of Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 26(g)?
  • How can technology make review more proportional?

This program will benefit anyone who handles any type of litigation matter in court. As a recent California ethics opinion stated, “In today’s technological world, almost every litigation matter potentially” involved e-discovery. That means that every attorney who handles matters in court must have at least a baseline level of competence in and an understanding of e-discovery, the California opinion said. The same is true for attorneys in every jurisdiction.
