Course Description

This webinar is designed to help lawyers and law firms understand the professional ethics rules and other state bar regulations governing the use of social media, with a special emphasis on the first amendment constraints around these rules and specific examples of the use (and misuse) of current social media platforms.

Topics will include:
  • Rules of Professional Conduct: The ABA model rules, state-specific examples, what they mean for online communications.
  • The Commercial Speech Doctrine: Understanding lawyer’s first amendment rights, and how the commercial speech doctrine defines how expansively attorney advertising regulations can be read.
  • Social Media: Social media (twitter, facebook, blogging, etc.) raises a host of issues with respect to advertising rules. Topics will include thoughts on ways to use these tools while still complying with advertising and solicitation rules.
