Lawyers and technology competency: Louisiana weighs in

Here is a recent Daily Record column. My past Daily Record articles can be accessed here. ***** Lawyers and technology competency: Louisiana weighs in In 2019, lawyers have a duty to stay on top of changes in technology. This requirement first appeared in 2012 when the ABA amended the comments to Model Rule 1.1 to indicate that technology competence is a requirement for lawyers. Specifically, Comment 8 was amended to include the following: Maintaining CompetenceTo maintain the requisite kn...

Cybersecurity Risks for Mediators and Arbitrators

Despite almost daily reports of privacy breaches and thefts of confidential information, the role of mediators and arbitrators in protecting this information has received relatively little attention in the professional community. That is rapidly changing. Now, almost every continuing education session I go to has some discussion on this topic. Are the mediators and arbitrators in the room complying with privacy laws? This means PIPEDA compliance for those who work in Canada and – more crucially ...

When emojis and the law collide

Here is a recent Daily Record column. My past Daily Record articles can be accessed here. ***** When I started writing about the intersection of law and technology in 2006, emojis were a sidebar in the world of communication. Until the release of the first smartphone, the iPhone, emojis were typically used only in certain online chat rooms. But with the release of the iPhone in 2007, people were able to use emojis more often using various messaging apps. And then when iOS 6 was released in 201...

Texas Bar weighs in on lawyers using cloud computing

Here is a recent Daily Record column. My past Daily Record articles can be accessed here. ***** Texas Bar weighs in on lawyers using cloud computing For nearly a decade now, I’ve been tracking ethics opinions that address the issue of whether lawyers can ethically use cloud-based software to store confidential client data. As a refresher, cloud computing is when you store your data on servers owned by a third party instead of on your law firm’s on-premise servers. New York was one of the f...

Best of Our Blogs: April 2, 2019

Yesterday was April Fool’s Day. In honor of this either beloved or despised holiday, I thought I’d write about some of the ways we end up feeling like fools.

Our top posts will help you remove the veil so you can see...

I’m Weak I Ordered The Natasha Denona Biba All Neutral Eyeshadow Palette

Did I need to spend $129 on the Natasha Denona Biba All Neutral Eyeshadow Palette? Probably not. Did I? Yes and I have no regrets! I think I’m going to get a lot of use out of this balance because hi, I’m so boring lately. No, seriously, I am. The other day I was playing with the ABA Riviera Eyeshadow Palette and I did this pink and yellow look and I had at least three people stop me and say, “Wow! I really like your eye makeup!”. Now, this is amazing for me because I’ve been blogging for...

QNBT: Extracting Real Value from Non-Billable Time

“Your billable time is your income; your non-billable time is your future.” – David Maister Non-billable time gets little respect* Many perceive non-billable time as something that can be conjured at will. Taking someone to dinner who may or may not be a qualified client prospect can be recorded as business development. Furthermore, that two-hour dinner can turn into three or four and, with travel time, five hours. Those who have spent many hours on gruelling and challenging legal work can eas...

WIRTW #545 (the “International Women's Day” edition) #IWD2019

Happy International Women's Day! I didn't always consider myself a feminist. But I'm proud to call myself one ever since May 27, 2006—the day my daughter was born. It wasn't that I was hostile to the issue; I just never engaged in any active thought about it. Now that I have a female life for which I am responsible, I fully embrace the term. I worry about the world in which she lives, and how that world may treat her because of her sex. ❔ Will she have the same opportunities? ❔ Will she earn the...

For ALT, Its Second Conference Was A Reckoning

In 2017, a group of longtime and prominent members of the International Legal Technology Association, unhappy with the association’s direction, broke off and formed an alternative, the Association of Legal Technologists. At the time, nQueue CEO Rick Hellers, who spearheaded the split, wrote on LinkedIn that he and others were concerned about ILTA’s overall direction and the “widening gap between the organization’s core values and the actions of its leadership.” In February 2018, ALT held its fir...
