Creating a Social Media Policy for Your Law Firm and ClientsSocial media now intrudes on every aspect of personal and professional life. For a law firm, social media can be used as so many others do, for promotion, but there is also the overriding need to use extreme caution while considering potential legal ethics issues. Social media is such a part of everyone’s lives now that firms must set internal policy to avoid any unintentional issues that might affect their reputation, client confidentiality, case management, and potentially create a legal ethics dilemma. Covered in this seminar will be practical solutions to developing a social media policy that can effect client confidentiality, conflict of interest issues, case management, how it relates to professional conduct and other workplace policies and impact firm reputation management. Learn to identify social media pitfalls for the firm, individual lawyers and employees of the firm and clients. Leave with a comprehensive understanding of the 9 key social media areas related to the practice of law and a law firm’s public and private faces. This seminar will also provide some basis for attorneys to advise their own clients on such policies.
