    Thirty-six states so far have adopted the duty of technology competence as part of their professional conduct rules for attorneys, but the rule is very broad. What does technology competence mean for day-to-day legal work, and how do law schools educate students to fulfill this duty? Please join us for this roundtable discussion by legal educators and practitioners across multiple jurisdictions to find out how different institutions agree (or disagree) on teaching law students to be technologically competent. The session will include small group discussion to engage directly with colleagues.
    Section Award will be presented at program conclusion.
    The Section held a virtual business meeting prior to the Annual Meeting.
