The Law of the Smart Phone

Lessons to De-Mystify the Powerful Technology in Nearly Everyone’s Pocket

  • 96% of Americans own a cell phone of some kind
  • 81% of Americans own a smart phone
  • The average adult in the United States spends 2-4 hours per day talking, tapping, typing and swiping…

The implications of this extensive usage are significant for you, your clients, and your pending matters.

Why a seminar on smart phones?
Because this pervasive technology is a source of:

  • Communication
  • Evidence
  • Geo-location
  • Surveillance
  • Private and Protected Information
  • Habits
  • Convenience
  • Research
  • RISK
  • And More!

The influence of smart phones is so multi-faceted that you don’t know what you don’t know. Attend this program to learn more and be a better advocate for, and counselor to, your clients. You’ll leave understanding the technological capabilities – and the legal principles at play – with this ubiquitous device.

Smart Phone Privacy and Data Security: How to Assess and Minimize Risks in the Current Reality

So, what are the real data privacy and security risks when it comes to smart phones, and how, in our current reality where convenience reigns, do you take steps to protect your own and your clients’ and organizations’ private information? This session will leave you with broad background and practical recommendations for best practices.

Are We Addicted to Our Smart Phones?
As humans we are wired to respond the social aspect of a smart phone. When we get a text, email, notification, message, or the like, our brains release a pleasure chemical called dopamine.

Learn what you need to know about the neuroscience behind our heavy societal smart phone use – in order to help yourself, your clients, your colleagues and others use this technology in the most informed way possible!

Unplug Before You Burn Out: Smart Use of Smart Phones for Attorney Mental Health
1.0 elimination of bias credit applied for
Smart phones make lawyers more connected and mobile – able and ready to respond to client needs effectively and efficiently. The technology is a boost – it also has downsides: several recent studies have examined the impact of technology and social media use through smart phones on mental health, revealing an alarming picture (especially in the context of the legal profession, where lawyers are already burdened with extraordinary anxiety and mental health challenges). This session will examine the impact of smart phones in the legal profession and outline key tips and behaviors that lawyers can undertake to use their phones in practice in ways that are aligned with personal and professional well-being.
– Bob Schuneman
