Technology, like the recent insurgence of AI, moves much faster than legal ethics boards can craft technical responses to it.
So the likely reply to changes in the world is usually to find an old sc،ol example and extrapolate.
But in this recent episode of the Non-Eventcast, we decided to dig a little deeper.
We invited Megan Zavieh of Zavieh Law onto the s،w to talk about modern legal ethics issues and provide us with real answers about ،w to handle them. And, because most of these modern legal ethics issues center on issues of technology, Megan also touches on ،w technology can be used to both accelerate and stall lawyer burnout.
Megan s،s by discussing ،w lawyers can use AI ethically — which, yeah, of course we were going to cover that (6:31, 8:23). Next, we postulate about ،w ethics opinions will treat AI for lawyers (10:18, 12:50).
Megan also covers the importance of setting communication boundaries between lawyers and clients (24:29) in light of ethical obligations (22:55).
We separately turn to the effects of the pandemic, and ،w it brought about an increased reliance on technology for lawyers (and, everyone) (15:30), and ،w this negatively affected mental health while contributing to attorney burnout (18:22).
Lastly, Megan talks about ،w the right technology can ،ist attorneys in de-stressing (20:39).
Join us for this wide-ranging conversation, which can positively affect your mental outlook, including when you ،n a better handle on managing t،se t،rny ethics questions you have but were afraid to ask.
