About this Program

Attorneys need to know how to use social media to promote themselves while also maintaining their professionalism and adhering to the ethics rules pertaining to confidentiality, privacy and advertising.  Attorney Ronald Coleman and the founder of uMCLE, Tim Baran, discuss social media and the specific ways in which it relates to, and poses risks, to attorneys. Coleman and Baran explain not just how to use social media, but how to use them effectively and in a way that does not endanger attorneys. In addition, a number of useful tips for both new and experienced users are also included.

Agenda:
I. Choosing a Platform
II. Professional and Personal Profiles
III. Liabilities of Social Networking
IV. Who Should Use Social Media
V. Blogging and Credibility
VI. Legal Research

Format of interviewing the speakers was very engaging. Speakers were animated and seemed to enjoy talking about what could be a very tedious topic.

Very lively

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.

Rebecca
Alexandria, VA

These were by far the most engaging speakers I've seen on Lawline. Their easy conversational style was enjoyable and the moderator was excellent at directing and guiding the conversation.

Mark
Sugarland, TX

The speakers were very engaging and interesting. I loved the "panel discussion" format.

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.

A natural course selection for any attorney who uses the internet, I, for one, found this seminar very interesting and helpful.
