A pre-recorded streaming video replay of the June 2020 webcast, Zoom Training for Lawyers and Using It Securely.

This essential seminar is designed to alert you to the many ways you can use Zoom in the practice of law – with an eye to making sure your usage of Zoom is secure and ethically compliant!

As lawyers move to working remotely, we’ve flocked in droves to Zoom for video conferencing. The growth in Zoom usage has exploded recently. As of the end of December 2019, there were approximately 10 million free and paid daily meeting participants. In contrast, that number has increased to over 300 million free and paid daily meeting participants in April of 2020.

Zoom is rich in features and has become a staple for all of our practices in recent weeks – and our clients seem to love it too. But beware – in order to use Zoom ethically and competently, you need to learn how to use it securely, and this brief seminar will help you with that.

Taught by two national experts in the field of law-related information technology and security, this thoroughly practical one-hour online program will teach you how to not only use Zoom and many of its most helpful features with ease – it will also help you learn how to use it securely, as your practice requires.

  • Basics
  • Equipment
  • Participation in a meeting
