Addressing Technophobia: Training Technologically Competent Lawyers

Topics: Corporate Legal, Emerging Legal Technology Forum, Law Firms, On-Demand Webinars

The Thomson Reuters Institute is pleased to announce the  2020 US Emerging Legal Technology Forum, a robust and compelling examination of the ongoing tech-related innovation efforts in place at some of the nation’s most progressive corporate legal departments and law firms. Held as a series of three discrete webinars, this first installment addresses lawyers’ reaction to or affinity with technology in legal practice. 

Much has been said about the practical and ethical motivations behind the duty of technology competence for lawyers. Now, more than ever, clients expect legal counsel to demonstrate proficiency across a wide swath of technologies capable of transforming legal practice and offering greater overall value to a matter. Yet, for all the talk of duty and expectations, less attention is paid to how law firms and corporates actually train their legal talent, whether at the associate or partner level. This conversation examines some of the most successful tech-focused professional development initiatives in law firms and corporate legal departments today. Our veteran panel examines what strategies have—or have not—proven successful while operating in a highly competitive market.
