There have been many International Conferences on Technology for Education. One has been was held at IIT Bombay, and others have been held in places like London and Berlin. Since that time, a lot has happened.
Technology has spilled over into the law and legal issues like privacy, e-discovery, and even internet marketing across state lines for attorneys. We are now in a truly international community stretching from Southern California cities like Long Beach, all the way to Florida, Canada in the North, across the sea to Europe, Africa and even the Balkans down to China.
One group technology has impacted is the negligence personal injury lawyer. For example, cruise ship law may be international maritime law. But it could be abrogated by contract. One example of technology is reporting a crime at sea. You could actually send an e-mail to the FBI, or use a satellite phone to call your lawyer and have a forensic expert waiting at the dock when the victim, such as a cruise ship rape victim.
Other ways technology has effected lawyers is the reporting requirements for potential data theft, or tampering due to the attorney-client confidentiality issues. Since injury lawyers usually operate in high volume, this could potentially impact them a lot, since they get a lot of e-mail. So we have invited new participants to discuss technology, law and other legal issues that are related in an effort to promote the efficient lawyer.Tweet
