The Law Society of Manitoba on Computers and Technology
The Law Society of Manitoba does not have specific rules, regulations or practice directions on computer technology. However, the Code of Professional Conduct applies to e-mails, text messages, data stored "in the cloud" and Facebook as much as it applied to paper files and faxes, or a traditional brick and mortar law office. The principles of client confidentiality and privacy do not change. The only things that change are the mechanisms by which the protected information is stored and transmitted. Various Canadian Law Societies and their insurers have developed materials that provide guidelines and advice on best practice. These materials provide suggestions on how to properly protect electronic data and information, and practice more efficiently through the use of technology. We have provided links to some of the best of that material from other Canadian law societies, as well as American and Commonwealth resources. We also direct you to past articles Law Society of Manitoba articles on technology issues.
