Description: Social media is everywhere. Many law firms, legal departments, and lawyers use social media to advertise services to attract new clients, network with other legal professionals, and share compelling legal updates with both clients and perspective clients. While there is no question social media provides an excellent way for legal professionals to connect with clients, other legal professionals, and the public, it is important, however, to know what the potential ethical pitfalls are before posting or responding to social media content.
In this webinar, we will review some potential social media pitfalls legal professionals need to know about, including, but not limited to, the following:
• Sharing content in jurisdictions where the supervising lawyer is not licensed to practice law.
• Engaging in impermissible person-to-person solicitation and legal advertising.
• Failing to take appropriate steps to preserve, to collect, and to disclose social media evidence in the litigation context.
• Failing to keep client data confidential.
Since the digital world is constantly evolving, lawyers must keep informed on new or enhanced obligations as technology advances. Failure to do so may result in court sanctions, license suspension, or an unfavorable litigation outcome. This webinar is designed to help you understand your ethical obligations and spot potential issues to avoid inadvertent violations.
