Technology Competence is now a Duty in Hawaiʻi

Hawaiʻi has now adopted the duty of technology competence (effective Jan 1, 2022). We have become the 40th state by my reckoning.

Rule 1.1

      Maintaining Competence

[6]To maintain the requisite knowledge and skill, a lawyer should engage in continuing study and education and keep abreast of changes in the law and its practice, including the benefits and risks associated with relevant technology. See comments [18] and [19] of Rule 1.6.

      (Amended August 18, 2021, effective January 1, 2022.)
