Episode Notes

The Kennedy-Mighell Report is all about keeping you up to date with new tech, but sometimes Dennis and Tom are left wondering—is there too much focus on the new and not enough on the old? Lots of attorneys feel most comfortable using old technology standbys and struggle to give them up, but these old friends are putting firms at risk. Dennis and Tom unpack the security and efficiency problems associated with legacy technologies and urge lawyers to be mindful of their ethical obligations for technology competency. In their second segment, they shift back to present tech to discuss the growing popularity of dark mode and its impact on user experience.

As always, stay tuned for the parting shots, that one tip, website, or observation you can use the second the podcast ends.
