Bar Tech. CLE Scheduled For April 16


The Mississippi Bar’s Technology Committee will hold its biannual CLE on April 16 at the Hilton on County Line Road in Jackson. This is a great CLE that I highly recommend for all lawyers and legal assistants.
This CLE is for legal professionals who want to make their practice and life easier. It’s also for professionals who want to reduce overhead by implementing easy tech. solutions that will save money.
Big firm lawyers may think there will be nothing useful for them here because they have in-house IT people. I used to be a big firm lawyer, and I disagree. You’re going to learn stuff too. You might learn more than most attendees because you overly rely on your in-house IT people.
Also, many of your clients expect you to be tech. competent. If you aren’t, you could make bad impressions on them without knowing it. All lawyers in private, public and in-house practice need to be tech. competent.
