Sm@rtEdgeLaw Group™ will be discussing “Privacy and Social Media” in an upcoming American Bar Association webinar May 7th with colleagues at other firms and organizations. Social media is everywhere. Join this webinar for an update on the latest social media legal issues and challenges. Attorney CLE credit available.
Program Description: Social media continues to change the way people receive news, interact with government and customers, and share personal details once known only to a select few. And, of course, social media has taken a front and center role in employment, litigation, and recent governmental agency action by the SEC, NLRB, and EEOC, to name but a few agencies dipping into the social networking waters. From Facebook to Instagram to SnapChat, WhatsApp, Twitter, and beyond, join us as we explore the legal social media landscape. Included in this webinar will be a review of recent caselaw and current and proposed state legislation; an exploration of professional responsibility requirements for attorneys when using social media; a discussion of privacy and potential constitutional issues; and best practice tips for crafting social media policies.
