Veritext CLE Webinar | For Attorneys & Paralegals:

Social Media - Discovery, Ethics, Evidence & Sanctions

Date: Wednesday, June 14, 2023
11am PT / 12pm MT / 1pm CT / 2pm ET

We'll review the pervasive world of social media providing counsel with focused information on its integral presence in the practice of law from an ethical, discovery, evidentiary and practice perspective. Technology advancements have created many grey areas in terms of reasonable expectations of privacy and have blurred the lines of public and private identities. Ethical considerations and requirements, as well as new case precedents, mistrials and sanctions are popping up daily throughout the country due to the misuse and lack of understanding of the affect social media now has in the work environment and practice of law. Class participants will be armed with specific techniques and tools to identify and collect evidence from social media sources. The presentation qualifies for 1 hour of Ethics MCLE credit. 

In this seminar we will review:

  • What is social based media?
  • Why is social based media important to attorneys?
  • How social media can cost you: public pitfalls and poor judgment
  • What should you be considering ethically?
  • Online research tools and resources
  • Ways to consider and capture social media evidence
  • Considerations when developing social media policies
  • Jurors, Social Media, Judges & Mistrials

This seminar is in high-demand and the number of seats is limited. Register and reserve your seat today!
