South Carolina has joined 37 other states in adopting the duty of technology competency for lawyers. Specifically, in November 2019, the Supreme Court of South Carolina approved several amendments to the Rules of Professional Conduct impacting a lawyer’s legal and ethical obligations as they pertain to technology competency. However, while the amendments are based on 2012 amendments to the ABA Model Rules of Professional Conduct, there are notable differences.
This seminar will address the ABA technology competency requirements, the South Carolina technology competency requirements, the distinctions between the two, and what it means for the practice of law in South Carolina.
SC Bar members who sign up for the online seminar recording will be contacted by Assistant Dean for Academic Technology Gary Moore with details concerning username and password for accessing the recording on the School of Law's Panopto video hosting site, as well as instructions on viewing the recording.
