Good Article on Social Media Policies for Law Firms

Should you, or should you not, have a social media policy for your law firm? Some of the social media experts say, no. That social media is just an extension of the professional and it is professional conduct that should govern use of social media. But then again, law firms are employers, and they need to make the same consideration regarding how social media impacts folks inside workplace in addition to the public perception of a firm. Social-Media Policies for Law Firms By Molly DiBianca in the ABA’s Law Practice Today takes a serious look at the question — that’s why we’ve added it to Legal Marketing Reader’s Legal Marketing 101 articles from around the web.

Writes DiBianca:

“If your law firm does not yet have a social-media policy, shame on your law firm. Law firms, like any other business, are accountable for the conduct of their employees. And employees are using social media. Ignoring this reality will not reduce your firm’s exposure to risk. The only way to manage exposure is to tackle it head on. And the best way to tackle social media is to educate employees about the firm’s expectations with a well-drafted policy.”
