Social media of every kind – law firm web sites and e-newsletters, blogging, LinkedIn and Facebook – have opened vast new opportunities for attorneys. You can communicate with current and prospective clients, colleagues and staff, and the public. You can also obtain vast troves of information on virtually everything and everyone – factual information about cases or transactions and background information on prospective clients, jurors, opposing counsel and others. Because social media has become pervasive overnight and is so easy to use, it’s easy to overlook the real and substantial ethical issues that arise when using its various platforms. This program will outline the most important attorney ethics issues when using social media to communicate, obtain information, and develop new client work.
