An attorney need not practice in the cyber or technology fields to be affected by changes in those areas. As those changes come more rapidly, some lawyers and firms are experiencing a form of “Future Shock,” a syndrome first described in the 1970s. 

This program will address this shock and how it affects both in the practice of law, and compliance with ethical duties.

The Bad: Drawing the Work/Life Line when Technology is Ubiquitous. 

The Ugly: Means and Methods of Cyber Attacks Change Quickly, and Law Firms are Prime Targets
