The number of ethical considerations that one must take into account when practicing law have increased due to our current social media-oriented world. How may lawyers use social media channels such as LinkedIn and Facebook in an advertising and business context, and what limitations are there to such use?
This program will discuss several case studies analyzing what states have done regarding social media use by lawyers and will highlight content on Bloomberg Law. It will also address how social media may be used in the realm of litigation.

• Learn about lawyer advertising via social media – what to do and what not to do.

• By focusing on the Model Rules, find out when lawyer-client relationships start.

• Discover how to obtain information from Facebook for use in litigation, and the related admissibility issues.

Legal practitioners involved in litigation; any attorney seeking information regarding compliance and the ethical requirements of the profession; business development and career development professionals.
