    How Not to Commit Malpractice with Your Computer
    featuring Adriana Linares


    Attorneys have been subjected to substantial sanctions for their ignorance, or even reckless disregard, in handling client documents, data, communications, and other electronic exchanges. This session will explain the ethical implications of dealing with law office technology and provide attorneys with the knowledge to avoid ethical dilemmas others have faced. We will discuss common claims and how technology can assist in preventing them. 1. How to prevent clerical errors and administrative failures using matter management and trust accounting. 2. Performing effective conflict of interest searches. 3. Using calendaring software to prevent missed deadlines, missed filing dates, and failure to react to calendar (including automated court rule calculations). 4. How an integrated document management system can prevent lost, misplaced, or misfiled documents.
