Privacy Law Speech at Virtual LEGALTECH


Please join me at 1pm CDT on June 14, 2012 for my online speech entitled “Privacy – Social Media, Internet & BYOD” which is FREE (including ethics credit!), all you have to do is register at Virtual LEGALTECH (please use "Privacy614" as your code when you register).   Here’s the description of my speech:

The Internet has transformed the practice of law, but few lawyers understand how privacy laws impact them and their clients. This presentation will highlight specific ethical considerations for the practice of law regarding attorney-client privilege. All clients and lawyers rely on Social Media as a means of sharing information and communicating, but with little consideration of the privacy laws. Today’s label to describe employees use of their personal cell phones, tablets, and laptops is BYOD (Bring Your Own Device). Since employees conduct company business on these personal devices with little concern for legal implications BYOD is fraught with a myriad of complex legal issues, including attorney-client privilege.

The daylong program sponsored by ALM includes speeches on eDiscovery and a panel of IT leaders, so I encourage you to watch other speeches of interest. Actually this Virtual LEGALTECH will be online for the next year, so please listen in at your convenience.

My Virtual LEGALTECH presentation includes 236 PowerPoint slides during the 1 hour speech. This may seem like a lot of PowerPoint slides, but I set the “world land speed record” when I used 250 slides for my webcast for the TexasBarCLE (State Bar of Texas) which recorded in April 2012 entitled “Internet & Social Media Privacy Law.”

Needless to say I use PowerPoint in a most unique manner while trying to be bullet free!

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.


AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
