Alta Pro has been leading the way on Cyber CLE.

Cybersecurity is such a sizzling-hot topic in legal ethics that lawyers may soon be required to take a Continuing Legal Education course specifically on point in order to maintain their law license.

It’s already the rule in New York, which has become the first state in the country to require lawyers to take a CLE program specifically on Cybersecurity, Privacy and Data Protection.

Alta Pro has been at the forefront on this issue. In June we presented the free CLE webinar “Cybersecurity Ethics: Safeguarding Client Data in Today’s Emerging Hybrid Practice,” taught by attorney David G. Ries, a contributing author of the 2021 ABA TechReport and a long-time expert in law office cybersecurity. In that webinar, Ries drew on his cyber expertise to drill down into the TechReport and extract valuable law practice pointers.

Close to 300 lawyers and legal professionals from across the country attended the Alta Pro Webinar “Cybersecurity Ethics” webinar in June.

Be sure to register now for our next cutting-edge CLE event: “Managing a Law Office in Uncertain Times: Practical Tips for Building a Solid Foundation for Your Law Practice” on September 28.

Running a law office can be a roller-coaster. While some of the ups and downs are outside your control, others can be managed, contained and prepared for. Join us on September 28 at 12 noon CT for the free, one-hour CLE webinar “Managing a Law Office in Uncertain Times: Practical Tips for Building a Solid Foundation for Your Law Practice.” See how a one-page business plan may be all you need. Learn safe and effective “scripts” for initial consultations. Receive a crash course in Law Office Budgeting 101 and Best Practices for client screening. Discover the “Dirty Dozen” list of clients to avoid. The webinar is presented by Gary Poole, a 40-year practitioner and mentor for new lawyers, and Hannah Chapman, a business and financial consultant for small businesses. Attend “Managing a Law Office in Uncertain Times” for a master class on how to maintain law office excellence through good times and bad. Stay tuned for registration details.
