    The two ethics presentations were very good. The Pace personal coaching session was terrible and, in the few moments it had any relevancy, expressed points obvious to even the most junior attorneys.

Answer Bar: Maximizing Technology in Your Law Practice

Session 1: The Duty of Technology Competence - Understand the importance of technology competence for your practice and the ethical obligations to be competent. Explore the current landscape and recent decisions in this area, as well as common problem areas for attorneys. Session 2: Conducting Cost-Effective E-Discovery and the Use of Technology Assisted Review (TAR) - Examine how technology-based processes, specifically technology assisted review (TAR), can be cost-effective and efficient solutions for e-discovery in litigation. This session highlights situations where TAR is often the preferred tool over attorney review and flags times that it is not, and discusses how to address contentious issues that may arise in TAR-related negotiations with opposing counsel. Session 3: Social Media Hot Topics - Should social media platforms be civilly liable for the content that their users post? Is the content moderation on platforms like Facebook and Twitter subject to statutes like those passed in Florida and Texas? Come hear the latest on these issues currently before the U.S. Supreme Court, as well as other cutting edge topics in social media - like service of process via social media and even NFTs, the evidentiary value of emoji and memes, and the limits on how lawyers can ethically respond to online criticism.  Session 4: Communication - Attorneys have a duty to keep client communication secure. Get practical tips on conducting communication with the courts or with opposing counsel, as well email filtering and its impacts on communication including filing deadlines, etc. Session 5: Cybersecurity and Protecting Against Cyber Scams - An informative program about the legal standards that govern a compliant cybersecurity program as well as an update about the ethical duty of technology competence that affects all Texas lawyers. Session 6: Will Robot Lawyers Steal Our Jobs, and Can They do the Job Ethically? - As artificial intelligence tools like ChatGPT and others have entered the legal sphere, questions naturally arise as to the extent to which AI can satisfactorily complete legal tasks. AI is being widely used for everything from legal research to the drafting of contracts snd pleadings to even assisting with jury selection. But can “robot lawyers” truly replace their human counterparts? This program examines not only the ways in which AI is impacting the legal profession, but also the multiple ethical dimensions of AI use - from our duty of tech competence to our duty to supervise non-lawyers.

    The political slant of the first presentation has no place in mandatory CLE, especially in ethics credits. The copyright discussion was largely an entertaining free for all with knowledgeable speakers. Generally a good collection of presentations. Thanks.

    Interesting presentations in a variety of areas of the law.

    good presenters

    I thought Michael Curry's "speech" was poor. The rest was good.

    Great civics lesson on what lawyers can do for democracy under attack. Surviving spouse lecture was very thorough as far as engagement letters.

    Good ideals, but not sure how easy it is to put the ideals into practical action. People do not revere lawyers anymore. The commercials have solidified that. As I saw on a forum the other day, "98% of lawyers give the other 2% a bad name." And, with social media, it is impossible to stop or refute disinformation. Several years ago I tried doing that. My blood pressure shot through the roof, I had to get on medication, and thankfully I got off social media to get myself back in check.

    I would include much more details in situations suggesting attorneys are not involved in protecting democracy. Often attorneys are most concerned about successful practice of law for clients.

    Excellent CLE, very informative and timely

    great

    Very good analysis of our history and current state with a focus on characteristic which threaten us.

    Loved ted lasso presentation. Democracy session would be better if speaker did not read script.

    For the game show portion (Wait Wait...), the audience's responses / solutions to various games/puzzles, were inaudible because they had no microphones. So, for future reference, someone who has a mic should be sure to repeat back what the audience member said.

    This was a great course! My only suggestion would be to talk more slowly -- not only because the presenter finished early, but also because I was having a little trouble processing and internalizing all the suggestions that were given. Luckily I have the slides! Thanks for a helpful and well-researched presentation.

    very interesting

    It was a nice overview with coping suggestions to address a common psychological condition that can lead to problematic anxiety among attorneys.

    The use of setting boundaries to take control of her schedule was very helpful.

    Excellent topic

    Enjoyed it immensely -- it was packed full of solid overview and practical tips. Would be great in a longer version too!

    I took this course to get ethics hours, but quickly decided that it would be helpful, not only for me, but many other lawyers.

    Certainly an interesting topic.

    Very helpful and clear

    All speakers very informative.

    In terms of the quality of the presentations I would rank them in the order presented.First-best, third-worst. You can, in my opinion, dispense with the lawyer wellness hour, or find a less preachy presenter

    Ethics in Departing Employee Litigation - really appreciated the hypotheticals approached. Attorney Wellness: Speaking Up, Reaching Out - extremely important topic and timely after COVID impacted the nation.
