You’re a “mobile” lawyer today whether you want to be or not. But you really can work from anywhere as long as you have a mobile phone and a wireless signal. Clients expect you to be accessible when they need you, and they expect you to accomplish your work regardless of whether you’re at the office, working from home, or sitting on a beach.

But how can you be sure everything is safe? How do you know if you’re following the proper ethical rules? This session will explain (in plain language) the risks associated with the mobile devices you use every day and how to sufficiently protect the confidential information that you carry on them.

You’ll learn:

  • The best apps and tips for protecting the information on your mobile devices
  • The “benefits and risks” of practicing on mobile devices
  • How to avoid that pit in your stomach when you lose your phone
