The ALPS Top Ten Malpractice Traps and How to Avoid Them 
This program will identify ten of the most common malpractice concerns, discuss how such problems arise, and provide useful practice tips and advice that can help the attorney stay out of trouble with each area of concern. Participants will learn what some clients know about legal fees that you don't, what keeps malpractice carrier claims and risk attorneys awake at night, and why the clients who actually sue you aren't the ones you're necessarily concerned about. 

The ALPS 2015 Top Technology Concerns - What You Need to Know 
The latest and greatest in computer technology, be it hardware or software, isn't the final answer when it comes to reducing exposure to a malpractice claim or avoiding ethical problems. In fact, the innocent misuse of technological tools can seriously increase one's risk. Consider the following. Is failing to use social media as an investigative tool malpractice? Are there ethical or malpractice ramifications for failing to educate your clients about participation in social media? Is it ok to use cloud based services? Do lawyers need to be worried about banking Trojans? This program will explore these questions and many more with the intent of redefining just what attorney competency means for those practicing in the 21st century.
