Social media, blogging and microblogging, podcasting, and other online forums are great ways to connect with the world. In particular, lawyers and policy professionals, as well as law students, may find them useful to establish a public voice as an expert and develop a professional network, to advocate for issues they care strongly about, or meet and connect with new or existing clients. However, engagement on these platforms also comes with a myriad of ethical questions and doing so carries a constant potential of creating damage to your reputation, undermining your professional opportunities, or creating thorny problems for you, your employer, and anyone you are representing. Experts in the field will discuss the pros and cons of deciding to engaging on public internet forums as a legal or policy professional, what to think about before doing so, and how to ensure you are always meeting your ethical responsibilities.
