Moreover, the presenter discusses topical issues of vital importance, such as the ?defund? movement, which runs along a spectrum, from those in Minneapolis who would disband and rebuild their police department (on the theory that the current department?s culture is too pervaded by racism and violence), to those in New York City or Los Angeles who advocate reallocation of spending and reform of police practices. Ultimately these issues end up in Court, where lawyers must be leaders and help society solve these complicated issues. This program aims to increase awareness of the critical legal issues involved.

Failure to do so can be devastating for any law firm and the shift to working remotely due to COVID-19 has exacerbated the probability of these problems occurring. This program aims to elucidate the importance of cybersecurity for attorneys who are providing legal services from home and how to protect that legal data from potential cyberattacks.
