Program Number: 3046 Presenter: Kenneth Jones, Marina McGuire, Esq.

The American Bar Association first amended the comments to Model Rule 1.1 relating to technological change in 2012.

During the past eight years, almost forty state bar associations have updated the comments to their ethical rules to require lawyers to keep informed about technology changes. *Additionally, cloud computing is now increasingly prevalent in legal operations. To comply with Model Rule 1.6, which calls for lawyers to act competently to safeguard information relating to the representation of a client against unauthorized access, lawyers may wish to develop a basic understanding of how technology and cloud computing works and the associated risks to ensure data is securely stored with safeguards in place to protect that information. *To assist in compliance with ABA Model Rule 1.1 and 1.6, strong technology teams must be developed and maintained.

Who Is a Subcontractor Under a Federal Government Contract? (02/25/2020)

Program Number: 3045 Presenter: Merle DeLancy, Jr., Esq., Michael J. Montalbano, Esq.

But the lines become less clear when a prime contractor does not inform the vendor that the subcontract is being entered into in furtherance of a federal government contract or where the vendor supplies goods that the prime contractor uses to perform commercial and government contracts. Join Merle DeLancey and Michael Montalbano as they dig further into this topic.
