Business Law 2018: What you need to know to stay ethical


TRPC 1.1 says Competent representation requires the legal knowledge, skill, thoroughness, and preparation reasonably necessary for the representation. In this presentation you will learn about key areas of technological competency for lawyers. With the emergence of new technologies the speakers will discuss some challenges presented by Smart Contracts, Blockchain, DLT, AI, and Cryptocurrencies.



It was interesting to learn about the impact crypto currency can have on ethics matters.

I learned a lot regarding the use of internet in providing legal services. Also Ethical consideration regarding the use of non-traditional currencies and the attorney's interaction with clients issuing these currencies.

Data breach information was alarming, especially the use, or lack thereof, of encryption when it is readily available. This presentation made me feel better about the current security features my firm uses, but made me realize the need to consistently analyze my security to ensure it is up to date.

Both speakers playing off each other made a difficult subject understandable as my attention did not wander. Well done.

It was interesting to see how other states are beginning to address cryptocurrency payment and regulation of legal "zoom" type websites.

Nice, concise presentation covering a broad spectrum of topics in a short span

Got a much better understanding of cryptocurrencies and how their use impacts the legal community.
