COVID-19 forced everyone to “go virtual” in one way or another, but when the dust clears, what will law practices look like post-pandemic? In this basic/intermediate session, the panelists will discuss best practices for maintaining client confidentiality, maintaining files, and using tech tools in the future, even after COVID-19. What changes will need to be made to your practice? Will we be living in a hybrid tech world, and how will that change your practice?

Featured Topics

  • What Meeting Software Is Safe to Maintain Client Confidentiality?
  • ABA Formal Ethics Opinion 477: Security Measures Needed for Electronic Communication
  • Ethical Considerations When Using Tech in Your Office
  • Best Practices on E-Signatures and Related USCIS Memoranda
  • Interpretation Technologies That Can Defy Language Barriers
  • Keeping Your Documents in the Cloud Forever: Advantages and Concerns
  • Essential Paragraphs to Add to Your Legal Agreement for Virtual Functions
  • Disaster Preparedness
