eLAWYERING AND THE FUTURE OF LEGAL WORK
Friday, November 7, 2014
12:00 – 1:00 pm
Lecture Hall 1 (LH1)
California Western School of Law
350 Cedar Street, San Diego, CA
The American Bar Association eLawyering Task Force
www.elawyering.com (Law Practice Division)
eLawyering is doing legal work – not just marketing it – over the Web. Pioneering practitioners have found dramatic new ways to communicate and collaborate with clients and other lawyers, produce documents, settle disputes, interact with courts, and manage legal knowledge. There are exciting initiatives underway now that deserve attention by all lawyers – present and future.
The legal profession is being disrupted from without and from within. To be successful in the coming era, lawyers will need to know how to practice over the Web, manage client relationships in cyberspace, and offer “virtual” legal services. Come hear about the knowledge and skills you need to prosper in the years ahead.
eLawyering also offers major opportunities to improve access to justice by those who can’t afford or don’t like traditional commercial modes of service delivery.
This free program is open to all area law students and lawyers with an interest in the innovative use of technology. Lunch will be served (pizza and drinks).
Panelists will include:
* Adriana Linares (legal technology trainer and consultant with LawTech Partners, a professional services firm specializing in the legal industry)
* Marc Lauritsen (President and Founder, Capstone Practice Systems; former director of clinical programs, Harvard Law School; adjunct professor, Suffolk Law School)
* Richard Granat (CEO and Founder, DirectLaw – a virtual law firm platform provider, and Co-Director, Center for Law Practice Technology, www.digital-lawyer.com)
Please RSVP to Francine Vasquez at FVasquez@cwsl.edu or 619-515-1576 on or before Wednesday, November 5th.
