What You'll Learn

Did you know that LinkedIn didn’t even exist prior to 2007? In the scheme of things, social media really hasn’t been around THAT long. Social media is one of the most high-impact, cost-effective marketing tools lawyers use to boost name recognition and pursue targeted communications. Why? Because the most popular social media sites are generally free to set up and use. Things change quickly in the world of social media. In fact, when the MN Rules of Professional Responsibility were written, social media wasn’t a spark in anyone’s eye!

  • Ethical Considerations of Social Media

  • Your Website as a Social Media Tool

  • Ethical Website Best Practices

Why Take This Course?

Social media can feel overwhelming to a lawyer who has not yet ventured down its path. From LinkedIn to Facebook, Twitter to Google +, most lawyers don’t think they have time to do social media “right,” so they don’t do it at all. At this stage, you likely have a LinkedIn profile, but don’t use consistently, and when you are on LinkedIn, you’re not quite sure what to do! Let us help you demystify social media best practices for lawyers. 

We will give you tools you can apply to your practice right away, and you can rest assured, each recommendation we present complies with the MN Rules of Professional Conduct.

You really don’t need to spend a lot of time on social media for your efforts to reap results. Take this ethics CLE and learn everything you have ever wanted to know about effective SEO for lawyers.
