As I am sure you know by now, the comment to ABA Model Rule 1.1 on the duty of competence states that there is a duty to understand the "technology" that lawyers use in the practice of law. To summarize what issues arise regarding this subject, the Legal Talk Network has posted a podcast interviewing Prof. Andrew Perlman (Suffolk). Perlman discusses how the lawyer’s ethical duty of competence is evolving and what level of technological proficiency is reasonably expected today. He covers the most basic knowledge of Adobe Acrobat, Microsoft Word, and Microsoft Excel to automated document assembly and cybersecurity.
