Recently, Sensei’s Sharon Nelson and John Simek attended the ABA Midyear meeting in Miami, FL. There they gave a seminar entitled, “What Does Ethical Competence Mean in the Digital Era?” Priscilla Totten writes about this presentation in her article, “Defense against Alexa hacks, ransomware and other tech musts to best secure client data” featured in the Your ABA e-newsletter.
It was presented by Sharon D. Nelson, president (attorney), and John Simek, vice president (technologist), of Sensei Enterprises in Fairfax, Va., who discussed a number of ways lawyers need to show technological competence in order to do their jobs well and ethically.
Nelson opened by saying that lawyers have a “duty to safeguard” their clients’ information, which is spelled out in the Model Rules of Professional Conduct, specifically Rule 1 (specifically Rule 1.1 Competence, Rule 1.6 Confidentiality of Information and Rule 1.4 Communications) and Rules 5.1, 5.2 and 5.3, all dealing with supervision.
