Event description
Maximize the benefits of utilizing social media while observing all ethical implications in legal practice.

About this Event

During the pandemic, we all resorted to using technology to do business. Lawyers developed firm sites to connect with prospects, acquire clients, build a personal brand and establish trends, publish legal content, and drive traffic to our websites. They also use social media for data mining and e-discovery in support of their clients.

This CLE will discuss how a lawyer can maximize the benefits of their social media presence. We will also discuss how a personal post may impact the lawyer as a professional, and their law firm’s reputation. How do we respond to negative comments? How do we make sure our statements are accurate and factual? What are covered in lawyer-client privilege? Are there state or federal guidelines that social media administrators and moderators need to know?

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

1. Possess a basic knowledge of the nature and sources of ethical standards of the legal profession regarding technology competencies and the practice of law.

2. Develop the knowledge and skills to assess, evaluate, implement, and use social media in a legal setting.

3. Possess the skills to protect personal and client data.

4. Identify and become familiar with electronic communication applications and digital discovery.

PANEL:
