@UofSCLaw Legal IT Seminar:
“Legal Services Clients Need from Tech-Savvy Lawyers”
January 19 @ 8:00 AM - 9:00 AM
JAN. 19, 2017:
Lawyers who understand technology and laws governing its use offer important competencies to clients, not only in general, but in providing specialized counseling and advice as well as representation in litigation involving these issues. Lawyers frequently represent clients facing legal problems in these areas, and to fulfill their ethical duties, lawyers must provide competent representation or decline the matter. Young lawyers can develop their tech expertise and legal knowledge into valuable credentials that are attractive to employers and clients alike and use these abilities to attract clients and develop new kinds of services that are not already offered by their law firm or prospective firm. One of the most important issues for clients is protection of privacy rights related to digital information, which is stored in the cloud and transmitted electronically via the Internet. Similarly, lawyers have the ethical duty of confidentiality.
Jacqueline Pavlicek will discuss her experience in doing exactly that, offering insights into ways to develop expertise and skills and to attract clients by offering needed legal services that are not widely available, and to do it in ethically permissible ways.
Jacqueline “Jax” Pavlicek joined Callison Tighe as an associate in May 2014, after serving as a staff attorney for the South Carolina Court of Appeals. Since joining the firm she has concentrated on litigation and appellate work, including involvement in the case that paved the way for making same-sex marriage legal in South Carolina.
Pavlicek holds a CIPP/US designation from the International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP). She earned that credential after completing lengthy training and passing a comprehensive exam covering privacy and data protection laws and best practices. She provides clients in the private sector with counsel and representation in privacy matters, including helping clients respond in the event of data breaches. She can help businesses or organizations draft policies that comply with privacy laws.
Additionally, Pavlicek serves as a Young Privacy Professional Leader in the IAPP’s Columbia based KnowledgeNet chapter.
The seminar has been requested for one hour of general CLE credit (course #171644). It will be held in the School of Law Auditorium and is open to both law students and members of the legal community.
The program starts at 8 am, but come early for coffee, breakfast, and a chance to network.
