The 2021 Virginia State Bar Techshow is being offered via Live Webinar this coming Monday (April 26th) and will feature CLE, Virginia Supreme Court Justice Cleo E. Powell and a national panel of ABA TECHSHOW speakers.
The webinar fee is $50 and includes 7 hours(!) of Live CLE credit, with a possible 3 hours of Ethics (depending on your breakout choices). CLE is approved. After the webinar, registrants will receive links to view the sessions they did not attend on the day of the webinar, which will offer the opportunity to receive up to 6 more hours of on demand CLE credit.
The event runs from 8:30am ET to 5:15pm ET, with a brief intro and welcome, followed by thirteen sessions over seven hours, with breakout tracks for the first six sessions, and a single “Plenary – ALL NEW: 60 Tech Tips in 60 Minutes” session to conclude the event starting at 4:15pm ET. How are they possibly going to provide 60 tech tips in 60 minutes? I have no idea, but I’m definitely intrigued! There will also be a 40 minute “Ask the Experts” session over the lunch break from 12:05pm ET to 12:45pm ET.
Sessions in the Agenda cover a variety of topics, including “Ethical Misadventures in Challenging Times”, “Cybersecurity Ethics for Law Firms: A Brand New Landscape”, “Critical Technology in the Pandemic and Post-Pandemic Practice of Law”, “The Intersection of Ethics and AI in the Practice of Law” and “New Evidence in Town: Audio and Video, Including from Video Conferences”, just to name a few. Great list of speakers too.
I’m pleased to be co-presenting in the “New Evidence in Town: Audio and Video” session with my good friend and colleague, Brett Burney! The volume of audio and video ESI was already exploding in the world before the pandemic and, now with all of the video conferences we’re all conducting (many of which are being recorded), it has shifted into hyperdrive! We’ll discuss those trends, recent case law and discuss the technical approaches for addressing audio evidence in discovery! Hope to see you there!
I’ll also be participating in the “Ask the Experts” lunch time session as well, so if you have any discovery related questions, feel free to bring those and I’ll pretend to be an “expert” and try to answer them! 😉
You can register for the 2021 Virginia State Bar Techshow here. $50 for seven hours of CLE? Quite a bargain! But you have to register by Sunday, so act fast!
