    CLE Credit: One standard CLE credit has been approved (#268703).
    Description: The legal profession has long faced issues with equal access to justice and the uniform administration of justice. Evolving technology offers the possibility of a level playing field and the democratization of the law, but it could also perpetuate or exacerbate existing biases and prejudices in the justice system. In this hour-long CLE presentation, Joe Kaczrowski, Online Services Director, MSBA, speaks on the impact of new technologies on  the delivery and availability of legal services, both in how lawyers practice law and how the public consumes legal services and where these technologies fall short in the elimination of bias in the legal profession.
