Description

For many, the challenge of learning best practices in the social media arena prevent them from taking advantage of its potential benefits. Another perceived obstacle is that attorneys are rightfully concerned about compliance with the code of professional conduct. After all, a social media post reaches far and wide, exposing any ethical violations to the public eye. This timely session is designed to demystify these concepts and analyze ethics developments relating to social media throughout the United States.
