Let’s face it. You know that understanding Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and a cavalcade of social networking sites is critical to the practice of law today. Micah Buchdahl, “the internet marketing attorney” and chair of the ABA’s Law Practice Management Section, focuses on the ethics issues and rules of professional conduct as they relate to the marketing and business development aspects of your law practice.

How have different states reacted and interpreted SNS as compared to general advertising, web sites, blogs and comparable media?
  • 5 goals when using social networking sites (SNS).
  • 5 "don’ts" guaranteed to get you into trouble.
  • 4 things to watch out for.
  • And lots more!
