Practice & Procedure Technology 

Lawyers should be thinking about how they engage with technology. The legal profession is being introduced to an increasing number of new technology programs, tools and services that have the potential to aid work or create risk. Before outsourcing or assigning tasks to the tech-savvy, lawyers should be proactive in learning about new technology and understanding the most effective way to use established technologies. Be self-reliant – tech competency and knowledge. There are many everyday practical decisions that lawyers make that require the use of certain technologies. There are also everyday choices lawyers make to engage with certain technologies. For example, on a simple level, lawyers need to be able to use Word and email to communicate with clients and others but they are also choosing the format for each communication, whether a letter, an email or a telephone conversation. With those everyday decisions in mind, our ability to engage with technology, based on our technology competence and knowledge, may influence the effectiveness of our work as lawyers.
