The Future of Analytics and Technology in eDiscovery, Investigations, and Beyond

Ethical Use of Social Media in Law Practice

In 2018, the import of social media as a transformative technological, cultural, and political phenomenon is no longer in dispute. Nor has the law been immune from its impact. Indeed, under various state professional codes, lawyers are subject to an ongoing duty of competence to keep abreast of changes in the law and its practice, including the benefits and risks associated with technology such as social media. Social media can be a valuable investigatory and marketing tool for legal professionals. Its use can also pose risks to legal professionals and their clients.

Using Social Media and Surveillance in Your Favor

It’s difficult to remember life before social media. Twenty years ago, the term ‘private life’ still existed and was actually attainable.

People all over the world use the Internet to commit a host of crimes, some of which the public doesn't even know are capable of being done electronically.  Attendees will learn how criminals use the internet for hacking, spoofing, identity theft and fraud schemes.

Ethics & Issues in Cases with Endless Loose Ends

Title IX cases based on allegations of sexual assault and/or harassment have ethical, privacy, and discovery issues that are unlike most other litigation. The paralegal working on a Title IX case, whether plaintiff or defendant, needs to be cognizant of the potential bounds of discovery when dealing with the transient nature of the student population, the potential existence of discovery on private devices, and the danger of disclosure that violates federal privacy laws and court protective orders. This session will explore the kinds of discovery that Title IX cases encompass, where that di
