Cyber Legal Advisory Services llc

It’s the Internet. You have no privacy anyway. Get over it.

According to the ABA Journal, “Law firms should ensure that each employee—lawyer and nonlawyer alike—understands that he or she has an individual responsibility to protect confidential information and knows how to do so. This training should be provided as soon as an individual joins an institution and should be repeated throughout their employment.

Cyberlegal Advisory Services llc (CLAS) provides on-site training, education, and consulting to legal organizations (both law firms and in-house counsel) on best practices to secure attorney-client information, and to ensure compliance with ethical duties of confidentiality and technical competence. Model Rule 1.1 of the American Bar Association Rules of Professional Conduct provides,

A lawyer shall provide competent representation to a client. Competent representation requires the legal knowledge, skill, thoroughness and preparation reasonably necessary for the representation.

Comment 8 to the Rule states,

To maintain the requisite knowledge and skill, a lawyer should keep abreast of changes in the law and its practice, including the benefits and risks associated with relevant technology, engage in continuing study and education and comply with all continuing legal education requirements to which the lawyer is subject.

CLAS provides training seminars that will be approved for helping attorneys to fulfill their obligation to become and remain knowledgeable about the risks associated with the cybertechnology that is essential to the modern practice of law.
