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.
