Dean Gonsowski, Vice President of Business Development at Kcura shared his perspective on the educational landscape as attorneys face ethical requirements for technical competence.  

Calling out California for recognizing that not knowing about ediscovery could be considered incompetence, Dean raised the bar and took it a step further for attorneys to embrace "technical fluency."

Referring to half of the states adopting the ABA Model Rule, Dean states, "Just as the need for attorneys to ratchet up their technical competency is at its zenith, the sands are shifting underneath them."  As technology advances, Dean asserts that "the response to machine efficiency will be a more complex interweaving of ethical standards with the practice of law."

Organizations identified by Dean to spark creativity and collaboration to address the sea change as law and technology combine include The Sedona Conference, CTRL, EDRM, EDI and ACEDS.
