In addition, a number of useful tips for both new and experienced users are also included.

Very practical seminar on social media considerations, for someone who does not use social media or is considering it. Actually, this month there was a Va. State Bar case, reported in the local news papers concerning lawyers on blogs and advertisement vs free speech and public domain issues.
Alberto (Villa Park, CA)
Edward (Brooklyn, NY)
good program; Ron is excellent!

Marty is an excellent speaker and is very knowledgeable. Tim offered interesting counterpoints. I also thought the host kept things moving at an appropriate pace. One of Lawline's best CLE offerings.

howard (bath, NY)
A natural course selection for any attorney who uses the internet, I, for one, found this seminar very interesting and helpful.
Karen (Reston, VA)
This was an interesting course. The speaker who cannot take a day off from the use of social networking because then he would "not exist" should take a couple of weeks off and see whether it mattered all that much in the long run! But the speakers raised many good points about who should use social networking and why.
Mark (Sugarland, TX)
The speakers were very engaging and interesting. I loved the "panel discussion" format.
Geoffrey (Chappaqua, NY)
I liked the seminar and thought the material presented was useful and the speakers engaging. I did like the interview method of running the seminar, as opposed to the usual method of straight presentation.
Lorene (Kenilworth, IL)
Ayani (Chicago, IL)
Format of interviewing the speakers was very engaging. Speakers were animated and seemed to enjoy talking about what could be a very tedious topic.
Nilgun (Aurora, IL)
Loved the format!
Deanna (Woodbury, NY)
Robert (Alexandria, VA)
Very valuable information in this age of electronic communication.
