Recent amendments to Rules of Professional Responsibility 1.1 and 1.6 related to Competence and Confidentiality make it clear that lawyers have a duty to understand relevant technology to a "reasonable" degree, the exact contours of which remain yet unclear. As a further matter of Competence, understanding social media is especially necessary for litigators, as its very existence can be a boon—or bust—for your case. Finding, preserving, and ultimately successfully introducing it at trial are skills important as any other. This seminar, cosponsored with the Litigation Section of the Virginia State Bar, will explore both of these topic areas to ensure you are employing technological best practices with regard to your use of technology, and can exploit that knowledge at trial in the appropriate case.
