Ashraf Massoud and Jon Galen from Epiq will be presenting a MCLE on Social Media & The Law
Social media content can provide relevant evidence in a wide range of litigation contexts, and on the flip side social media offers attorneys, law firms and their clients the opportunity to build credibility and trust, highlight expertise, and establish a memorable brand. Lawyers must ensure that their online activities and their use of social media content for investigatory and litigation purposes adhere to ethical and professional rules of conduct. This MCLE presentation offers best practices for the successful use of social media, as well as practical guidance regarding situations and activities to avoid.
Date: Wednesday, March 21st – 11:30 AM – 1 PM
Location: Munger, Tolles & Olson LLP | 350 South Grand Avenue | Los Angeles, CA 90071
