Ethics and Social Media: Current Developments
 
 
Program Description:
 
Lawyers use social media technology to collect and share information, and communicate with others, not only personally but also when acting as lawyers. Important and probative information about a case - information about jurors, witnesses or others in litigation or about a transaction - can be more easily found on social than elsewhere.  Social media is also easily used to communicate with existing or potential clients, colleagues or opposing lawyers, and the public.  Client development - online advertising, blogging and emailed newsletters - is also commonplace among lawyers.  All these and other uses of technology raise substantial ethical issues for lawyers - competence, confidentiality, preservation of the attorney-client privilege, and honesty.  This program will provide you with a practical guide to substantial ethical issues when lawyers use social media and other technology in practice.
 
  • Ethics, social media, and technology - competence, confidentiality, and honesty
  • Communicating with parties, opposing attorneys, and witnesses via social media

  • Ethical issues when blogging, issuing e-newsletters/law updates to clients, or posting commentary or video online
  • “Friending” or otherwise connecting with judges, witnesses and others on social media platforms
  • Trends in texting, confidentiality, and discoverability
