Long time readers of this blog know that I have posted many stories about the implications of comment  to Model Rule 1.1 on Competence. According to this comment, the duty of competence includes a duty to "keep abreast of" the benefits and risks associated with relevant technology.
So, how does one "keep abreast" or anything? Well, one way is to read and watch the news. So, does the duty to know the benefits and risks associated with relevant technology (also known as technology competence) include a duty to watch and be aware of the news?
My friend Lucian Pera, one of the most respected members of the Center for Professional Responsibility, recently published an article arguing that the answer is "Yes." You can read the article here.
