‘Use of social media and networking by solicitors’ is a new free webinar available on YouTube from the Core Legal team.  The 34-minute webinar explains how social media and networking can help solicitors and law firms, plus there are useful tips on how to get the best out of these tools. Access to the webinar is free at:

Core Legal research found that over half of solicitors are on LinkedIn but no other social media tool is used by a majority.  Also, solicitors are mainly re-active users rather than pro-active users. In other words, they are more likely to be looking at content on these sites rather than adding content (

After a brief review of the above research, the webinar has three presentations:

  • Advice on developing a marketing plan and campaign for social media
  • Practical tips on how to use YouTube
  • Tips on using LinkedIn more effectively

Why lawyers should be paranoid about client confidentiality

Facebook

In April 2016, a lawsuit was filed claiming one Chicago-based law firm had failed to protect confidential client information. The suit didn’t accuse lawyers at the firm of inadvertently sharing client information. In fact, according to The American Lawyer, “[t]he complaint makes no claim that data was stolen or used against clients.” The claim solely focused on the fact that lax data security could have put client information at risk. In other words, fail to take proper precautions to protect client confidentiality, and you could find yourself in hot water – whether your lack of preparedness breaches confidentiality or not.
