Course Description

Social media allows us to share content instantaneously with multiple individuals. Smartphones further enhance our ability to share content.

Join Angela Scafuri, Shareholder at Wilentz, Goldman & Spitzer in exploring the multiple ways family lawyers can utilize smartphone data and social media in their family law matters.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Explore social media’s impact on family law practice
