CLE CREDITS: 1.0 ethics

(This is a “simu-live” rebroadcast of a previously recorded presentation. The presenters will be available during the rebroadcast to answer questions.)

Learn how to avoid potential ethical traps when you research social media profiles for investigative/background purposes and to use as evidence. The seminar* is partially based on the speakers’ fifty-five page Social Media chapter from their book, “The Cybersleuth’s Guide to the Internet. “

The speakers will review:

  • Social Media Research Ethical Guidelines
  • State Bar, Local Bar, and ABA Ethics Opinions
  • Cases Decided in Various States
  • How They All Tie into the ABA Model Rules of Professional Conduct

The program will also explore:

  • Who’s your friend? Could “friending” violate the deception or ex parte communication ethical rules?
  • Whether it is ethical to research the social media profiles of parties and witnesses during discovery or trial?
  • Whether it is ethical to research the social media profiles of potential jurors before trial or seated jurors before and during trial?
  • If advising clients to delete, deactivate, or adjust privacy settings on their social networking accounts lead to an ethical violation or spoliation charge?
  •  Configuring security/privacy settings in your own profile to avoid ethical breaches.
