Ethics & Social Media CLE:

Even if you don’t think of yourself or your practice as being particularly “techy”, you still have to be familiar with the world of social media profiles, smartphones, and cloud storage. Attorneys in over two-thirds of the country – including Arkansas and Missouri – are ethically required to be competent in the law AND its practice. Attend this CLE to be sure you know what’s acceptable (and necessary) technologically AND legally before you send a Contact Request to a juror, tweet client information, or ignore a chunk of highly probative Facebook evidence…

Date: July 25, 2019
Time: 12:00pm - 1:00pm CST
Missouri CLE Credit: 1.2 hours including .6 ethics
Arkansas CLE Credit: 1 hour ethics - ETH66752
