ABA Model Rule 1.1 states that a lawyer shall provide competent representation to a client. While this duty has existed for a while, the more recent addition of Comment 8 to Rule 1.1 makes it essential for lawyers to “keep abreast of changes in the law and its practice, including the benefits and risks associated with relevant technology[.]” This demands a shift in the way lawyers approach their understanding and use of technology in their legal practices.
Joining me today to discuss the intersection of technology and ethics is Ivy Grey, bankruptcy attorney, legal tech writer, and creator of American Legal Style for PerfectIt, which is a legal specific proofreading program for lawyers that runs within Microsoft Word.
