Join our very own New Jersey/nationally recognized speaker on GAI and electronic information, the Honorable Ronald J. Hedges, as he and this distinguished panel review some of the leading decisions and ethics opinions on discovery of electronic information and electronic records – as well as the new and “exploding” technology of GAI – and address intriguing questions, including:

  • What are the relevant Rules of Professional Conduct?
  • What does it mean to be “competent” about electronic information and GAI?
  • What opportunities and risks are posed by GAI?
  • What might be the “baseline” of technological competence expected of attorneys so that, at the least, attorneys know the right questions to ask and know when and how to seek expert assistance?
  • What should an attorney do to protect the confidentiality of client information?
  • What duties does an attorney have when in receipt of inadvertently produced information?
  • What should an attorney do to supervise experts to assist the attorney with GAI and electronic information in litigation?
  • What is the “cloud” and how might an attorney use it for professional or business purposes, including advertising?
  • What can an attorney do to investigate witnesses over the Internet?
  • What can an attorney do to investigate jurors over the Internet?
  • What about communications between attorneys and judges?
  • What should an attorney know about e-filing?
  • How does an attorney become competent and maintain competence with GAI and electronic information?
