Lawyers are now heavily reliant on technology in their day-to-day practice as it means they can deliver services to clients more efficiently and cost-effectively. However, lawyers are also starting to recognise the challenges inherent in using technology, particularly those related to their ethical obligations.

According to Sarah Mateljan, co-founder of LawCPD, lawyers are more conscious than ever of these challenges and keen to understand how they can successfully leverage technology while avoiding its pitfalls.


“We have seen a real trend towards lawyers choosing courses that will help them to understand the broader implications of using technology — particularly how this interfaces with cyber risk, communication and professional obligations. Our top three most popular ethics courses clearly illustrate this trend,” Ms Mateljan said.

It’s not just the intersection between ethics and technology that has captured lawyers’ interest in 2023. The impact of stress and mental health also feature prominently, as does the desire to make better decisions under pressure. 

“Throughout their careers, lawyers will face many ethical dilemmas — and each one will be unique. Having a clear framework to support a sound decision-making process can help relieve the intense stress many lawyers feel when dealing with these ethical challenges,” Ms Mateljan concluded.
