Attorneys have an obligation under the Nebraska Rules of Professional Conduct to provide competent representation to their clients. Competence in the digital age means understanding developments in technology and how technology affects the manner in which lawyers practice. For example: protecting confidentiality when sending emails, transferring documents or responding to discovery requests; do’s and don’t’s of social media; cloud storage benefits and risks; risks associated with client data on mobile devices; data security; document retention; and legal research services. The issues will continue to evolve at a rapid pace. The Nebraska Supreme Court recently put out for comment a revision to the Rules of Professional Conduct (Rule § 3-501.1: Competence) to specifically address technological competence so that lawyers understand their obligation to be familiar with the benefits and risks associated with technology relevant to their practice.

Panelists will discuss relevant advisory opinions and the national trend to include technology competence as part of the Rules of Professional Conduct and will share examples in three specific areas: 1) electronic evidence; 2) protection of client data; and 3) the ethics of social media.
