Put That Computer in its Place: Defining the Proper Role of Information Technology in Your Law Practice
John J. “Jack” Pringle Jr.
Adams and Reese LLP, Columbia
The information age is introducing attorneys to a dizzying array of products and services – all of which seem to promise more efficiency, more free time, and more profit. But many lawyers are overwhelmed by the pace of change and are having trouble understanding what computer tools to use and how to put them to work in their practices. While computer technology has the potential to be a significant asset to any law office, it is just one tool lawyers use to manage information and apply knowledge. And despite the power and ubiquity of information technology, computers are not always the answer to the challenges you face. In this powerful program Jack Pringle will teach you three things: 1) the roles information and knowledge play in the problem-solving and client service undertaken by attorneys; 2) how to assess what tools you are currently using to manage information and knowledge in your law practice; and 3) how to evaluate the need for new or additional computer technology in your practice to assist you in managing information and knowledge.
 
This seminar is for any attorney or law office employee who feels overwhelmed by computer technology, and is looking for a practical way to start the process of determining how to use computer technology effectively.
This program qualifies for 2.0 MCLE credit hours.

Melanie McCulley Yenovkian
Simpsonville, SC
The Fourth Amendment, and its accompanying case law, is one of the most complex and malleable areas of the law. Which law applies? Was it a search? Was the arrest valid? Does an exception apply? Is the evidence admissible or tainted? These are just a few of the many questions that arise when addressing search and seizure cases.
 
Former Thirteenth Circuit Assistant Solicitor Melanie Yenovkian will provide you with unerring guidance on the state of Fourth Amendment law, give practical advice to the criminal law practitioner on searches, seizures, arrests, and evidence, and bring all of this complex material together in an easy-to-understand format.
 
If you represent criminal defendants or serve as a prosecutor in South Carolina, this is a must seminar for you. Each registrant will get a copy of Melanie’s brand new Second Edition of The Fourth Amendment: A Step-by-Step Guide to Search and Seizure Jurisprudence in South Carolina.
This program qualifies for 2.0 MCLE credit hours
