Questions about what constitutes ethical technology and information use are among the most pressing challenges facing the legal profession. Existing standards for professional conduct often fail to adequately address lawyers’ need for guidance in the contemporary technological landscape. Librarians, on the other hand, have expertise in information-seeking behavior, research tools and methods, and applied technology. Often, however, they are not familiar with the ethical rules and opinions of the jurisdiction where they work. This program will bridge the divide, allowing librarians to provide lawyers the guidance they need to be technologically competent and ethical at the same time.
