AboutAbout This Course

Lawyers should not and cannot avoid social media. With more than 90% of todays online adults using social media regularly, it has fundamentally changed the way we all communicate in both our personal and professional lives. The question now is not whether lawyers can engage with social media, but how? While social media has become a functional imperative, it has also introduced risks, many of which, as yet, the law has not clearly addressed. This lecture will cover a number of common legal issues lawyers will face in the social media landscape, including: ethics, contract law, intellectual property, torts, regulatory law, employment law, evidence and recommended policies.
