This program is presented by The American Bar Association eLawyering Task Force (Law Practice Management Section)
This free program is open to all with an interest in the innovative use of technology.

eLawyering is doing legal work – not just marketing it – over the Web.  Pioneering practitioners have found dramatic new ways to communicate and collaborate with clients and other lawyers, produce documents, settle disputes, interact with courts, and manage legal knowledge.  There are exciting initiatives underway now that deserve attention by all lawyers – present and future.

The legal profession is being disrupted from without and from within.  To be successful in the coming era, lawyers will need to know how to practice over the Web, manage client relationships in cyberspace, and offer “unbundled” services.   Come hear about the knowledge and skills you need to prosper in the years ahead.

eLawyering also offers major opportunities to improve access to justice by those who can’t afford or don’t like traditional commercial modes of service delivery.

This event will be held in the Thomas & Mack Moot Court Facility.

Attendees may park in any metered space on campus or may use the free parking lot on campus, Lot S, which is located at the corner of Harmon and Swenson.
