MCLE: Technology, Cybersecurity, and Lawyer Ethical Responsibilities

11/30/2015 8:17 pm

This MCLE is presented by WENDY WEN YUN CHANG, ESQ.

2 hours of ethics CLE will be provided.

Saturday, January 30, 2016
9:30 AM - Noon

**LOCATION CHANGE TO:**
Loyola Law School
Merrifield Hall
919 Albany St.
Los Angeles, CA 90015

Technology is central to modern legal practice. Our phones today are more powerful in some ways than desktop computers were 20 years ago. Technology helps us practice both faster and at a higher level of quality, often in ways we cannot see. But this growth comes at a potential price. Cyberthreats come hand-in-hand with technology use, and the way we use technology can unknowingly heighten our risk of being hacked, and breaching our ethical obligations. This 2-hour presentation will go through common types of technology used in modern legal practice, review lawyer ethical responsibilities related thereto, discuss how cyberthreats come about in relation to that use, how those threats can be managed and, in the event of a breach, what the ethical rules require in response.

Cost
Early Bird Rate (Until 1/25/16)
- $65 for non-members
- $45 for members of all co-sponsoring organizations.
Regular Price (After 1/25/16 & at the door)
- $70 for non-members
- $50 for members of all co-sponsoring organizations. Student and Non-Attorney Price: $10.

The CA Bar Exam is arguably one of the hardest bar exams. If you did not pass the bar exam, you are not alone. It can be a struggle trying to figure out what went wrong and what your next steps should be. For that reason, we created this event to create a supportive community for repeat bar exam takers. Attorneys who have successfully passed the bar after a repeat attempt will share both their experience and advice about the process. Feel free to widely distribute the event information. Everyone is welcome.

To RSVP, please email ayano.wolff@gmail.com
Last Day to RSVP is 12/3/2015.
