Increasingly, state bar associations are considering the requirement of mandatory training in data privacy and cybersecurity. These topics are considered essential for lawyers in any practice area. Mastering the basics of data privacy, AI and the law, and cybersecurity can be critical to protecting the best interests of not only your clients but also your employer's data. Emerging technologies are raising new and novel legal issues. Understanding theories of liability in each of these areas will be considered necessary in the digital economy.

The Bootcamp is approved for one VA Continuing Legal Education (CLE) credit per session.
