With clients coming from a diverse range of cultural and religious backgrounds it is more important than ever that lawyers are equipped to foresee, and act appropriately in varying situations. While this can be difficult in person, it can be even more difficult meeting a client for the first time online. Although technology may help on some occasions, it can sometimes hinder client relationship development.
