    The Ethical and Effective Use of Social Media for Government Lawyers, an Essential Practice Skills Webinar
    Thursday, February 18, 2016
    1:00-2:00 pm Eastern

    Social media can be a boon or bust for the unwary. Government lawyers must understand and comply with e-discovery preservation and production duties and plan for them in advance. Bar disciplinary actions involving social media have grown exponentially and lawyers have found themselves fined, reprimanded, suspended and disbarred for ethical lapses.  Our experts will help you safely navigate the uncharted legal waters of social media – and fill you in on the real-life problems encountered by some government lawyers.

    This program will help public lawyers:
    -Learn both preservation and production duties in e-discovery – and how to plan for them ahead of time;
    -Avoid liability for trade disparagement, discrimination, and defamation (among other things);
    -Take advantage of the tremendous positive aspects of social media such as networking, researching, information sharing, and publicizing government actions; and
    -Find evidence on social media to help government litigators win cases.

    Panelists:
    -Sharon D. Nelson, Esq., President, Sensei Enterprises, Inc. Digital Forensics/Information Technology/Information Security, Fairfax, VA
    -John W. Simek, EnCE, CNE, MCSE, MCP+I, Vice President, Sensei Enterprises, Inc., Fairfax, VA
