Shawndra Jones, Senior Counsel, co-presents “Ethical Obligations Regarding Social Media” at the Midwinter Meeting of the ABA’s ADR in Labor & Employment Law Committee, which runs from February 8 to 11.
With the rise of social media, ethical concerns have been on the rise as well. What are attorneys and neutrals to do when there has been inadvertent contact with a party or their representative? Is “liking” enough to create a conflict? Given conflicting opinions regarding lawyers’ interactions online with opposing parties, potential clients, clients, witnesses and the general public, this panel will discuss the latest ethics rules and developments related to using social media in a legal practice, in litigation and in the negotiations process. After attending this presentation, lawyers will have a better understanding of their ethics obligations regarding social media platforms.
