Last year, Florida became the first state to mandate technology CLE for lawyers. In an order that also adopted the duty of technology competence, the Supreme Court of Florida revised its minimum CLE requirements to add three hours every three years in approved technology programs.
To my knowledge, no other state has followed suit and required that lawyers have training in technology. But should tech training be required? I consider this question in my column this week at Above the Law: This Week In Legal Tech: Should Tech Training For Lawyers Be Mandatory?
