Total Price: $30.00

Deadline to Register: May 30, 2016

Lawyers have an affirmative ethical duty to keep up with current technology, including social media and its various uses. For lawyers, navigating the various social media platforms can be daunting as we keep our ethical duties to ourselves, our clients and the legal system in mind. This CLE explores how lawyers can and should use social media in their practice, including the use of social media:

1) with in-house settings,
2) within law firms,
3) in marketing to potential clients,
4) in forming attorney-client relationships,
5) in communicating with clients, opposing counsel and others,
6) in gathering information about clients or opposing parties,
7) in discussing active controversies/cases, and
8) personal online presence.

The Section will also hold their annual meeting and elect new officers for 2016-17 during the first 10-15 minutes of the meeting.

Lunch and registration will begin at 11:45 a.m. The program will begin at approximately 12:00 p.m.
