Cinco de Media

The Five Ethical Pitfalls of Social Media (1 hour of Ethics)

May 5, 2021
10:00 am- 11:00 am PT
While this year, Americans won't be gathering to celebrate Cinco de Mayo through music, food, and drink, it doesn't mean that lawyers can't gather (separately) for some "spicy" CLE. Join Sean Carter, America's Funniest Lawyer, as he both entertains and educates lawyers from across the country about the ethical issues involved in using Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and the other social media tools that have become ubiquitous in our high-tech society.

So set your Outlook calendar, post the date on your Facebook wall and get ready to be linked in with lawyers from across the country as we celebrate Cinco de Media. You'll yelp with laughter as Sean Carter shows you how to stay four square within your ethical boundaries. #byob
In this presentation, we explore the ethical pitfalls that might ensnare lawyers in their use of social media. Citing specific disciplinary cases and ethics opinions, the speaker will demonstrate how seemingly innocuous acts can lead to violations of the Rules of Professional Conduct. And, perhaps most importantly, the speaker provides suggestions for how to properly use this powerful tool within the confines of our ethical boundaries, as they apply to:

  • Confidentiality
  • Improper contacts
  • Fraudulent investigations
  • Improper public announcements
  • Marketing violations
This program is eligible for 1 hour of Ethics in NV.
