This episode of Lunch Hour Legal Marketing offers an overview of the new skills and competencies that lawyers should have today that they did not need only 20 or 25 years ago, especially with regard to the use of technology. The panelists cover a number of issues, including cybersecurity, internet marketing and investigation, and e-discovery, but will focus most heavily on the Suffolk/Flaherty Legal Technology Audit, which was created to assess lawyers’ ability to use basic law practice technology, such as Microsoft Word and Excel, and how that demonstration of technological competence can be used as a marketing tool.
