This course outlines how to properly advise your clients about the risks and liabilities when they use social media networks. We will also discuss using social media as evidence and understanding judicial holds. To date, 15 states have adopted a version of the ABA Model Rule 1.1: Competence comment  that includes the word “technology.”
It is clear that it won’t be long before all lawyers are required to understand the basics of how social media platforms function. In reality, if you want to effectively advise your clients on the impact of their behavior, you
need to have a clear understanding of how social media platforms work. If you are going to trial, you may need to be able to communicate about various social platforms. After this course, you will be able to guide your clients more effectively, communicate clearly regarding issues surrounding publishing on social networks and know which possible areas should be avoided for ethical reasons. From the client meeting to the courtroom, this course covers it all.
