Lawyers are more dependent on electronic communication and social media than ever before. They use it to advertise in order to attract business. They use it to communicate with colleagues, adversaries, clients, courts and the public. It is also used to investigate adversaries, witnesses, jurors and anyone or any event related to a case. Unfortunately, it is also used for personal purposes in inappropriate ways and at inappropriate times. When used carefully it is an effective tool to grow a firm’s business, efficiently manage lawyers’ communications and facilitate inexpensive and easily accessible investigations. When used carelessly it could result in an ethical violation embroiling a law firm in a sanction proceeding, civil lawsuit or even a disciplinary investigation. This program will present an overview of the most common forms of electronic communications used by lawyers and the pitfalls to be avoided. Hypotheticals will highlight real life problems and practical solutions.
