Practicing Law In The Social Media Age (2015)

Practicing Law In The Social Media Age (2015)


3.0 MCLE Credits: 1.5 Professional Practice; 1.5 Ethics

This program offers detailed, wide-ranging discussion in two areas: Social Media Ethics Guidelines for Attorneys and Privacy and Security Issues in New Technologies.


I. Social Media Ethics Guidelines for Attorneys

            This session will explore the ethical implications of social media usage and will provide guidance on how attorneys can use social media to advance their practice while complying with their ethical obligations. Because social media is used by attorneys and their staff for a variety of purposes, knowledge of the ethical implications of that use is essential.  

            Some of the areas that will be addressed include:

            • Social media and advertising 
            • Providing legal advice through social media
            • Using social media to gather evidence
            • Performing juror research through social media

II. Privacy and Security Issues in New Technologies

            While there is some debate, several courts and commentators have noted that there is no expectation of privacy on social media. As the public increasingly makes use of social media platforms, personal information is also being captured and stored by commercial drones, wearable devices (i.e., Google Glass), and “Internet of Things” devices (i.e., fitbits, thermostats and household and workplace sensors). 

            This panel will explore the security ramifications of these new technologies and what control individuals have over the data that (i) they create and (ii) is created or collected about them without their knowledge. 
 
            The panelists will discuss:

            • User expectations of privacy regarding technology. 
            • How can companies be prepared to properly store and access all of this new data 
            • Can reasonable regulations be put into place? 
            • How lawyers can advise their clients on these issues
