iPad for Attorneys: Productivity & Security Essentials


Re-Broadcast on August 16, 2016

Mobile devices are rapidly shaping the way we work and communicate in today’s professional world. No longer tied to the computer sitting on our desk, iPad has opened up possibilities to access our data and be productive more efficiently and productively than ever before. However, there are critical new issues to be aware of. Cloud services, remote networks, public Wi-Fi, sharing and syncing services – these all are great tools but need to be considered carefully and it is critical to understand the best ways to keep your files and data safe to protect yourself as well as your clients. There are numerous cases where using unsecured email services or poor password management has resulted in strong disciplinary action. You can never be ‘too secure’ and having a good understanding of how to avoid data loss is a major benefit.

We will also examine some of the top productivity apps and accessories to help turn your iPad experience into a mobile powerhouse. With literally hundreds of thousands of apps available, it is impossible to sift through them all so here you will see the best of the best and learn new ways to take notes and organize your daily digital life.

Accreditation Policy
myLawCLE will seek credit where attending attorneys are primarily licensed for all of its live webinars and live teleconferences, except in states which allow for reciprocity (see reciprocity section below). Credit for CLE in a self-study format is sought for in most states; however, some states do not allow for CLE credit to be earned in a self-study format (see the self-study section below). Many states typically decide whether a program qualifies for MCLE credit in their jurisdiction 4-8 weeks after the program application is submitted. For many live events, credit approval is not received prior to the program. Credit hours granted are subject to approval from each state.

Additionally, some states allow for credit to be granted on a 1:1 reciprocal basis for courses approved in another mandatory CLE jurisdiction state. This is known as a reciprocity provision and includes the following states: AK, AR, CO, FL, ME, MT, ND, NH, NJ, NY, PR, and SD. myLawCLE does not seek direct accreditation of live webinars or teleconferences in these states.

On-demand CLE
myLawCLE will seek on-demand approval in all states except Virginia and Arkansas (outside reciprocal provisions stated above).
