“Lawyers, Modern Technology and Social Media! Oh My!”
Featured Speaker: Walter M. Stella, JD ‘90
For most attorneys, practicing law today means routine use of mobile devices, receiving and sending emails throughout the day, and the use of social media to network, develop business and assist clients. This “new” way of practicing presents lawyers with a myriad of potential pitfalls to navigate around. Well established ethical rules continue to govern lawyers’ interactions with clients and third-parties. These rules apply regardless of whether these interactions are occurring live or on-line. However, it is not always obvious when and how lawyers’ online activities trigger these rules and what lawyers should do to comply with them. This webinar will explore the ethical challenges facing lawyers today and how to best meet those challenges.
