Friday Night Seminar:
Divorce in the Digital Age
This seminar will examine the multitude of issues attorneys and clients now face when navigating divorce and family law matters in a world where technology is increasingly integrating itself into the divorce process. We will address how attorneys can incorporate new technologies to their benefit and the benefit of the client. It will also cover the many ethical pitfalls, which have become more and more prevalent with technological advances. In addition, attendees will hear from judicial panelists, both of whom are also experienced in civil practice, to give further insights on technologies they have seen used or used themselves in that division.
