Practice Safe Social Media!

Ripped from the headlines, social media has infiltrated the practice of law at every point of the profession. From marketing and public relations, to employment law and litigation, social media impacts the way attorneys communicate and practice law.

It is becoming more and more important for attorneys, legal administrators and marketing professionals, from large and small firms alike, to understand how to effectively and ethically harness social media including the implementation of social media policies.

In this one-hour discussion, Paul J. Kazaras, Esq. and Gina F. Rubel, Esq. will explore what legal marketers need to know about the use of social media while not running afoul of the Rules of Professional Conduct. Attendees will walk away with a better understanding of the do’s and don’ts of social media as it relates to marketing, public relations, and the practice of law.
