Why you should attend
For many lawyers, addressing legal issues arising from a client’s use of technology or negotiating contracts for technology services, like mobile apps, have become a routine part of daily practice. Lawyers, who often have no technical training, are required by court rules to report on their client’s technology infrastructure so that a judge may address electronic discovery issues. The rapidly changing world of technology requires that lawyers become secure in their understanding of the technology which underlies these issues.
A mastery of the technology underlying critical legal issues gives a lawyer a decided advantage in dealing with a technology-driven client and even more so in negotiating with an adversary. Deals are completed more quickly and properly cover the critical issues. Litigation is more efficient and discovery can become more focused.
This unique program is designed to give every lawyer a sound foundation in the complex technologies which shape the Internet, corporate data systems and mobile computing. It will present extraordinary sessions combining experienced technology lawyers with industry hi-tech experts. Those attending will learn the technical issues necessary to lead their clients through the minefields that are often created when technology intersects with the law. You will hear simple and direct explanations of current technologies, including: ways in which the Internet creates risks to personal privacy; the tricks hackers use to compromise corporate, government and personal data; how cloud computing works and why is it displacing the business data center; how location-based technology is changing the advertising industry; and how social networks track millions and millions of users each day.
