The full title of the presentation is: “Don’t Lose your Head in the Cloud”- Leveraging the Power of the Cloud to Run Your Law Firm and the Legal and Ethical Risks for Attorneys Using Cloud Computing.
By this point, the benefits of cloud computing are obvious. We’ve been using cloud computing in our personal lives, be it Gmail or Google Apps, Dropbox or Instagram. It is seeping into law firms as well, allowing lawyers to access documents and Client information from a laptop, iPad or other mobile device while in court, at home, on the road or otherwise out of the office.
What remains an area of concern, though, are the risks, ethical and otherwise, of using cloud computing in a law firm setting.
So to address both the benefits and risks of cloud computing for lawyers, the presentation is broken up into two parts:
- What lawyers should know about cloud computing.
- Risks and ethics of cloud computing for lawyers.
The presentation is at 10:30 tomorrow morning, so if you’ve been wondering how to use cloud computing in your law practice, or already use it but are concerned about risks or just want to learn more about the pros and cons of cloud computing, be sure to attend.
