On Thursday, as part of the Computer and Technology Section’s “Adaptable Lawyer” track, Don Cruse and I will give a talk entitled “Appellate Briefs in the Era of E-Filing.” This presentation will pick up where I left off last year and will update attendees on how appellate practitioners and courts are changing in light of mandatory e-filing and other developments.
Friday afternoon, I will join Peter Vogel and Dick Price for a panel discussion entitled “Using Modern Marketing Tools in Compliance with the Disciplinary Rules.” This presentation, which is part of the Law Practice Management track, will address some of the ways lawyers are attempting to develop business over the Internet, the rules they must keep in mind when doing so, and how the State Bar Advertising Review Committee is likely to view those efforts.
The Annual Meeting features a broad array of CLE and social events. Of interest here, the State Bar Appellate Section is co-sponsoring a program in which attendees will learn about constitutional history and hear the latest goings-on at the Texas Supreme Court and the Fifth Circuit. You can keep up with the conference generally through the State Bar’s dedicated mobile app and the conference Twitter feed (#SBOT12), which should be chirping steadily the rest of this week.
