Attorney Civility and Professionalism

Price: $19.99

Why is this important? The adversarial process can be taken to extremes, to where it may become an internal aspect of a firm's culture. This obstructs the kind of cooperation that can ease and expedite workloads. It's also been shown to create a level of stress that is extremely unhealthy; including life-threatening issues. Furthermore, we've all heard the expression ?you catch more flies with honey,? and yet the singular adversarial approach works against this. We need to recognize that this approach is only one tool in the toolbox, and you have access to many more. In addition, adding these tools will positively impact your success, health, and income.

Outside Tech Coming into Your Law Office

Price: $19.99

As more employees bring their personal technology to work, (like smartphones, tablets, laptops, and even desktop PCs), businesses can take advantage of this trend and reap a number of benefits, such as shorter technology learning curves, greater productivity, lower hardware and software costs and more active and involved employees. However, there is a downside to the BYOT development, of which risks to computer systems and exposure of confidential client information are just two examples. It is imperative to manage these risks with an official BYO Tech Policy ? an important implementation which most businesses and law firms have not yet done

He discusses the types of technology available to the modern law office to control the access to information and data and addresses strategies to create a solid plan to deal with BYOT challenges. Moreover, with the ethical duty to maintain confidentiality, it is vitally important that lawyers and law firms be aware of the risks of BYOT.

Through the Smoke: Legal Trends and Gun Violence

Price: $19.99

We are experiencing an epidemic of gun violence in this country.

The parents of a student killed in the 2018 massacre at Marjory Stone-man Douglas High School, in Parkland, Florida, the deadliest high school shooting in United States history, set up and tricked a former president of the National Rifle Association into giving a high school graduation speech defending gun rights in front of 3,044 empty chairs, one chair for each student who couldn?t graduate because they were killed by gun violence.

A political stunt? Perhaps, yet it effectively illustrates the severity of the problem.

We are living through a stress test exposing flaws inherent to our system of justice. (We look to the law to fix the flaws!)
