Technology Competence is now a Duty in Hawaiʻi

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.
