Plenary 2: Technology: Fight, Flight, Friend or Follow? – (Non CLE)

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

There’s no denying that the legal services marketplace is being driven by technology these days. Changes in the delivery of legal services are requiring lawyers to rethink their role in today’s marketplace and to reconsider their relationship with technology. At the same time, lawyers still have to struggle to balance their professional interests and their mandatory obligations. Are rules, traditions and core values at odds with lawyers adapting to technological innovation and how do you manage it all? Attend this enlightening plenary to hear from four very different lawyers, with four very different stories about their journey to “techfulness.”
