While social networking sites provide an array of opportunities for attorneys to market their services, connect with other lawyers and potential clients, a reality check dictates that they also have the potential to pose significant risks especially with respect to ethics. Consequently, attorneys must use social media with caution and must be up-to-date with respect to the important issues surrounding social networking and its impact on the legal profession. In addition, litigators must be in the know regarding the latest rules governing the preservation and use of social media data. The Knowledge Group is presenting a webcast to help attorneys be in the know with respect to the use of social media in the legal profession both as a marketing tool and as a discovery tool in litigation. The panelists will examine the pros and cons of social media and will also share practical guidance on how to effectively use social media while preventing potential pitfalls.
