the benefits and risks associated with
relevant technology, engage in continuing
study and education and comply with all
continuing legal education requirements to
which the lawyer is subject.

Duty of Competence
ABA Model Rule 1.1
[Comment 8]
“To maintain the requisite knowledge and skill, a lawyer should
keep abreast of changes in the law and its practice, including the
benefits and risks associated with relevant technology, engage in
continuing study and education and comply with all continuing
legal education requirements to which the lawyer is subject.”
59
Use technology to
minimize malpractice risks
60
Submission Requirements
Avoid having filings rejected for
preventable reasons by using
templates that assign:
● Margins
● Font choice
● Spacing
Keep Templates/Rules Up to
Date
Use templates that update
automatically to the most recent
forms.
Never be caught off guard from a
rules change.
Legal Technology Adapts to Different Legal Needs
Apply information across
submission bundles
Advanced drafting technology can
draft bundles of documents.
Most matters require packets of
documents, not just one at time.
Use matter intake to collect and
populate data across all the
necessary documents to avoid
drafting errors.
Nonlawyer Supervision
ABA Model Rule 5.3
(b) A lawyer having direct supervisory authority over the
nonlawyer shall make reasonable efforts to ensure that the
person’s conduct is compatible with the professional obligations of
the lawyer…
Continuous Ethical Duties
NY Ethics Opinion 842
Lawyer should stay abreast of
technological advances to ensure that
the storage system remains
sufficiently advanced to protect the
client’s information, and the lawyer
should monitor the changing law of
privilege to ensure that storing
information in the “cloud” will not
waive or jeopardize any privilege
protecting the information.
CA Formal Ethics NO. 2010-179
Because of the evolving nature
of technology and differences in
security features that are
available, the attorney must
ensure the steps are sufficient
for each form of technology
being used and must continue to
monitor the efficacy of such
steps.
Improve
Efficiency,
Accuracy, and
Ultimately
Profitability
