“The Most Common Ethics Mistakes Lawyers Make When Marketing Their Practice”
The year 2016 is here, and many things have changed with concern to your—and your firm’s—online presence. We will walk you through the ethics of establishing a successful online marketing presence and show you how to utilize Avvo, Google, social media, and other tools that can boost your firm’s online prowess without violating Nebraska’s professional rules of conduct. Attorneys will learn about: (1) how to ethically
and properly establish a website; (2) ethical issues surrounding reviews and solicitation; (3) online directory listings and the ethics of claiming a listing; (4) content and comparative speech; (5) ethical issues surrounding posting on social media; and (6) blogging: what you can and can’t do, including client confidentiality and disclaimer violations.
“The Ethics of Data Security”
This course will cover: (1) tools for time management, case management, and e-signing; (2) moving to the cloud: ethics and tips; (3) intake processes, client confidentiality, follow-up; and (4) going “paperless” does not mean no paper. After this program, attendees will understand the various technologies available to them to help improve how they deliver legal services, from time and billing to making filing dates and everything in between, and the ethical duties and implications attendant with using—or not using—such tools and technologies.
