Co-sponsored by the Law Practice Management Committee, the Committee on Attorney Professionalism, the Electronic Communications Committee and the Lawyer Assistance Committee of the New York State Bar Association.

Advances in software, technology and access to information via the Internet, have revolutionized the way corporate America conducts business. Law firms of all sizes have adapted to these advances adopting computers, word processing software and provide access to the Internet. However, few firms have truly leveraged these advances to gain efficiencies in their practice, become more competitive, increase firm profitability and meet client expectations by adding value to the client's business through knowledge sharing, pro-active counseling and efficiency, while reducing their costs.

The program will look at issues raised by the Report of the Task Force on the Future of the Legal Profession and how to implement some of the recommendations of the report. Attend this program to learn how your firm can begin to incorporate elements of the law firm of the future into your law practice today.

This program will review the traditional law firm model identifying the impact of failing to taking advantage of the latest methodologies, technologies and information management and where failure to understand these issues result in a breach of professional responsibility. Panelists will explore the strategic imperatives necessary to position your firm to be healthy and competitive while protecting your firm. Topics that will be covered include knowledge management ("KM"), matter management, process management and project management techniques as well as technologies to ensure your firm runs efficiently, safely and cost effectively such as cloud computing, enterprise search and tools to improve the efficiency and accuracy of large E-discoveries. Panelists will also discuss how these new methodologies and technologies impact attorney ethics and professionalism.
