In this session, John Mayer, Executive Director of CALI will lead a discussion about the rise in interest in “technology competency” requirements/recommendations as promulgated by new ABA Standards and State Bar Association rules. 

30 states have adopted some form of an “ethical duty to technology competency” (https://www.lawsitesblog.com/2018/03/make-30-states-another-adopts-ethical-duty-technology-competence.html)

How are law schools responding to this new mandate?

What options are available?

What can CALI do?

This session will be a discussion where audience members can share their local responses and talk about how they are implementing projects and products into their curricula.
