Ethical Issues and Implications on Lawyers' Use of LinkedIn

Ethical Issues and Implications on Lawyers' Use of LinkedIn
Social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn have become part of every lawyer’s daily life. They can be helpful tools for expanding your professional presence and marketing your practice. Also they are valuable investigative tools. But the same ethical rules that govern lawyers’ conduct apply to their use of social media and that can raise some concerns for lawyers in their use of these tools. 

This webinar will focus on the ethical use of LinkedIn as a marketing and professional development tool, but will also touch on broader ethical pitfalls in lawyers’ use of social media in general, both for marketing purposes and as a litigation tool, discussing some of the rules and opinions that apply. Some of these issues include but are not limited to:

Is your LinkedIn Profile Advertising?
Staying away from false or misleading statements.
Do you need a disclaimer on your LinkedIn profiles?
How do the solicitation rules apply to LinkedIn?
