John Cinti, Member of Rizzo & Darnall’s Insurance and Litigation Practices Groups, will join with an esteemed panel of legal professionals to present Technological Skills in Legal Practice in conjunction with the National Business Institute on Thursday, November 14, 2019 in Mount Laurel, NJ.
Using technology correctly can help you practice more efficiently, serve clients more effectively and create more hours in your day. Using it incorrectly can cause you to lose your competitive edge and expose you to potential liability. This full-day program will focus on teaching attendees how their technologies can work for them, not against them.
Topics to be covered, include an overview of the legal research and case law, how to collect electronic evidence and ensuring its admissibility when hiring an expert is not feasible, how to bring your electronic files under control and avoid liability risks with retention, destruction and security best practices, and how you can tap into the hidden capabilities of Microsoft Word to effectively create and format legal documents. You will also learn how to anticipate the risks, compliance and litigation issues inherent in using electronic signatures and e-contracts.
This basic-to-intermediate level seminar is designed for attorneys, paralegals, legal assistants, and other legal support staff members. The course has been approved for 7.2 hours of New Jersey Continuing Legal Education, 7.0 hours of New York Continuing Legal Education, 6.0 hours of Pennsylvania Continuing Legal Education, and 6.0 hours of NALA credits, including 1 hour of ethics credit.
