AboutAbout This Course

Lawyers can use social media for many purposes, but in some situations, Ethics rules limit what they can say, whom they may contact, and what advice they can give clients about their social media usage during representation.  In this course, feature lecturer, Michael Resko discusses the Do’s and Don’ts of social media, and what attorneys should be wary of when using the media for jury research, as pitfalls are often encountered when lawyers hire private investigators.  When lawyers oversee ‘Dissemblance’ issues, care must be taken to oversee legal ethics issues, especially when lawyers can easily be ensnared by pretexting. Mr. Resko references ABA MODEL RULE 5.3 to examine responsibilities of partners, managers, and supervisory lawyers, particularly when corporations may be tempted to leave the choice of techniques to investigators, a price many might invariably be considered not only too high but even exorbitant.
