When: October 13, 14, 15, 16, 2015
Where: Fairview Heights, Bloomington, Oakbrook Terrace and Chicago
What: 19th Jerry Mirza Memorial Risk Management Conference: Tomorrow is TODAY: A Day in the Life of a Technology Oriented Law Firm

Today’s client expects their lawyer to be as technologically advanced, if not more so, then they are. Clients expect their lawyers to able to communicate electronically; save money by using technology to easily, quickly and securely store and share documents and information with them and others; to use legal research and technological tools to represent them in and outside of the office. Clients also want you or anyone else in your office to be able to answer questions regarding their file if and when they call, not “I’ll pull your file and get back to you tomorrow.” The bottom line is that if you are not taking advantage of technology in your law practice then you are not practicing law as effectively and efficiently as possible. This seminar will discuss today’s technology that is being used by thousands of lawyers and firms throughout the US to serve their clients. It will show you a “day in the life” of a technologically oriented lawyer, using tools that are readily available. Here is what you can expect to learn from this seminar:

  • How to use available technology to improve efficiency and effectiveness in your office and operations while avoiding ethical and technology pitfalls
  • How all of your information, including file details and documents, can be available wherever you have an internet connection
  • What are the potential ethical and technological pitfalls and what you need to know about using this technology consistent with the Rules of Professional Conduct
  • How to use Fastcase, the legal research service that is free to all ISBA and ISBA Mutual Insurance members, in the office and on the road on your mobile device
  • How you can use technology in Court and elsewhere for presentation, electronic discovery, trial and more
