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 social media. Whether it’s Facebook, Twitter or another channel, most of the population is now using one or more of these tools to communicate and it’s increasingly dangerous for attorneys to blithely ignore social media and other developing technologies. Attorneys who attend this webinar can expect to learn:

  • 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 their 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.

Please note: CLE credit will only be granted to those that attend the live, online session.
