Can you imagine cross-examining a witness about a telephone call if you’d never used a telephone before? It sounds ridiculous, but that’s precisely where many attorneys find themselves today when it comes to social media. With most of the population now using one or more of these tools to communicate, it’s increasingly dangerous for attorneys to blithely ignore social media and other developing technologies.
Lawyers who attend this webinar will learn about:
- The growing number of ethics opinions addressing social media, and the obligation of attorneys to be familiar with them.
- How to think about counseling clients on use of social media during a pending matter — and the attorney’s own use.
- The intersection between competency requirements and changes in law office technology.
