    Legal Considerations Regarding the Internet of Things
    SPEAKER | NICK JARAMILLO, MICROSOFT
    A transformational technology of the “Fourth Industrial Revolution” may be the so called “Internet of Things” or “IoT.” Through hyper connectivity of physical “things,” and cloud computing’s capacity to rapidly analyze large amounts of data, the Internet of Things is predicted to create an omnipresent internet that redefines individual contributions to the world. The potential benefits to society of collecting and analyzing data generated from these “things” are enormous, but capitalizing on these potential benefits must be carefully balanced against the potential risks, and understood through the lenses, of the individual contributors who make the Internet of Things possible.

    Using Technology to Nurture Client Relationships
    SPEAKER | CATHERINE SANDERS REACH
    Under ABA Model Rule 1.4 (and most jurisdictions) a lawyer is required to maintain effective and consistent communication throughout the course of representation. In fact, a perceived lack of communication with clients is one of the top reasons for a complaint to be filed against a lawyer. Client relationships can be fostered and managed through thoughtful, proficient use of key technologies. But as with many aspects of law practice, there are ethical issues to keep in mind (e.g. protecting confidentiality, maintaining privileges, and duties to current, past and prospective clients) when using any communication technology. These concerns must be balanced with a lawyer’s need to communicate with clients to avoid the common malpractice complaint lodged against lawyers that they lack responsiveness. Explore a smorgasbord of communication-enhancing technologies and solutions for keeping lawyers within the ethical bounds.
