New resource center offers attorneys tools to improve technology competency

The State Bar of Michigan offers a new training and information clearinghouse on technology competency through its Practice Management Resource Center.

The Michigan Supreme Court modified the Rules of Professional Conduct to include tech competency in January 2020:

The center gives practical how-to information, quick-start guides, checklists, and cheat sheets. Topics include collaboration tools such as team chats, webinars, and live streams; general computer skills including billing and account software; cybersecurity and how to protect your firm; data security including best practices to protect sensitive information; ediscovery access and processing; efiling including MiFILE and PACER; and internet skills including cloud storage services and research opportunities.
