While the use of social media provides an array of opportunities for companies to market their services and connect with other companies and potential clients, attorneys (both in-house and outside counsel) have unique ethical duties that pose significant risks and require additional practical restraints on unfettered and unfiltered social media use to benefit clients.
This course offers in-house counsel & attorneys the opportunity to be equipped with a better understanding of ethical issues surrounding social media information, advertising, and use by attorneys.
The Knowledge Group has assembled a panel of distinguished practitioners and thought leaders who will share their expertise on how to approach the issues surrounding the subject. 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.
