Philip Bogdanoff, a nationally recognized continuing legal education speaker. Ethical conduct is a key to being an effective attorney. Each week we read about disciplinary cases where attorneys are suspended for misconduct involving clients, the courts, or other attorneys. In this presentation we examine disciplinary cases involving the misuse of social media and the types of conduct that result in disciplinary action and suspensions. We will examine the rules of professional conduct as it relates to giving legal advice on social media and advertising on social media. We will review a disciplinary case where a prosecutor used social media in order to persuade a defense witness not to testify at trial. Most importantly, we learn how to avoid professional misconduct with regard to the use of social media.
