About this program

Law firms are increasingly the target for hackers seeking confidential information and ransomware.  Clients are becoming more concerned about what their law firms are doing to combat this attack and requiring firms to adopt best practices and the latest technology to combat the attacks. We’ll explore those client expectations and what law firms can do to meet expectations and safeguard client information.

What are USLAW NETWORK Short Takes?

Welcome to USLAW NETWORK Short Takes. In each of these brief video clips, listen in as USLAW member attorneys lead conversations encompassing six key areas of focus:

  1. Litigation Trends Post COVID-19
  2. Corporate Trends Post COVID-19
  3. Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
  4. Leadership, Management, and Succession
  5. Technology and Innovation
  6. Health and Wellness

Each overarching topic includes four to five discussions. And when we say discussion, we mean it. There will be no formal presentations or panels; instead, we offer unique, facilitated conversations on important forward-thinking topics. Each video conversation is facilitated by Scott C. Carr, director of marketing and community relations at Klinedinst P.C., USLAW’s member firm in San Diego, California.

How can I access them?

There are 26 videos in total. We will release one a day through mid-November. Check back daily for the latest release.
