General practitioners are always in the fast lane, dabbling in multiple practice areas, jumping from case to case and struggling to stay on top of changes in the law. They are quite literally always on the go, running to client consultations, court appearances, and depositions. The one constant is the expectations of each client: general practitioners are expected to know and understand every new development that may impact an open case.
General practitioners, like every lawyer, can no longer ignore social media. Even if you do not personally use social media websites like Facebook and Twitter, your clients are using them and you need to be familiar with how they work. Social media can be valuable resources, and they can create ethical nightmares. Join our instructor for an overview of what you need to know about these increasingly popular online resources. Specific topics include intellectual property rights, lawyer advertising, privacy of information, employment matters, discovery and litigation, and general business and ethical concerns.

"Tremendously helpful and informative. The program really increased my awareness of potential issues in social media use." (Houston, TX)
"I thought the presentation was informative and engaging good examples were used to illustrate the points discussed, and the presenter showed energy, knowledge, and humor. A very good program." (Philadelphia, PA)
"This was timely and the presenter engaging." (PGH, PA)
"Good Program and knowledgable instructor." (Haddonfield, NJ)
"Although I was watching the program on my computer, I was constantly interrupted by a message that the program was stopped for nonattendance, or some other attendance-related reason. I don't remember the exact term that appeared. I was attending. I was watching, I was listening. The program never asked me to do anything while I was watching, for example click on a slide, or pause, fast forward or rewind. All I had to do was 'attend'. Even so, occasionally I did rewind or click on a slide, if I thought I had missed a point. I understand why the program paused every so often to make sure I was watching, but why did it report I wasn't attending? It could have paused for verification of attendance, which would have been the truth. Instead, it annoyed me with its unreasonable accusations." (Berwyn, PA)
