This on-demand webinar explores the ethical obligations, and pitfalls, that surround the ABA’s Model Rule for Professional Conduct 1.1 with particular attention to comment 8.  “To maintain the requisite knowledge and skill, a lawyer should keep abreast of changes in the law and its practice, including the benefits and risks associated with relevant technology, engage in continuing study and education and comply with all continuing legal education requirements to which the lawyer is subject.”
