The Ethics of SaaS
Please join us this month as we discuss the future of legal technology and the ethics of SaaS (Software-as-a-Service). This month’s meeting will look into issues such as:
What should lawyers look for in newer legal technology?
What ethical issues face lawyers who want to use newer technologies based on cloud-based software?
How will lawyers, typically untrained in such technical matters, be able to evaluate the efficacy of any one cloud-based software to meet his/her ethical requirements?
Does SaaS meet the ethical requirements to preserve client information and client records?
Should lawyers be using cloud-based software to promote the interests of their clients towards more efficient and cost-effective delivery of legal services such as discovery?
What costs, if any, can lawyers ethically charge their clients for the use of SaaS?
What costs, if any, may be recovered from opposing parties for the use of SaaS?
This month’s meeting is being presented and sponsored by CS Disco, Inc.
1 ethics CLE credit will be applied for in Minnesota.
Please RSVP by Tuesday, June 6, 2017. If you are not sure if you can attend, please respond with a "Maybe."
