As technology continues to transform virtually every aspect of human life, it stands to reason that attorneys, their clients and their practices are being profoundly affected.  Understanding the opportunities and risks these changes bring is critical to continued success for lawyers today-- and will only become more so in the future. 

At this full-day Institute, we will journey to the intersection of technology and the legal profession and explore the vast spectrum of issues that exist there, from digital transformation and cloud-based practice to the blockchain/cryptocurrency phenomenon, analytics, artificial intelligence, machine learning, and cybersecurity.  We’ll delve into the ways these trends are affecting practice management, client communications, discovery, litigation, and the very nature of client service, and connect the dots between what experts following these trends believe they mean for the legal community and what attorneys need to know in order to effectively advise clients about this rapidly developing area.  

Bloomberg Radio’s Politics, Policy, Power and Law will broadcast live from the Bar Center from 12-2pm EST, and will interview a few of the presenters and DC Bar thought leaders who will discuss key take-aways from the event.
