Overview

Social media is now a common feature of an attorney's practice. Social media also raises various ethical concerns that attorneys should appreciate and be prepared to address. This Briefing will use the newly revised Social Media Ethics Guidelines of the New York State Bar Association to focus on some of these concerns and to suggest best practices for attorneys as they deal with social media.

Please join Gail Gottehrer of the Law Office of Gail Gottehrer LLC and Ronald J. Hedges of Dentons US LLP as they discuss:

  • What attorneys should know to be competent to use social media
  • What attorneys should and should not do as they use social media to advertise and solicit business
  • What attorneys can and cannot do to respond to online criticism 
  • What attorneys can do to investigate parties, witnesses, and prospective jurors
  • What might happen when an attorney "friends" a judge
