GENERAL MEETING

MAY 20, NOON, VIRTUAL 

TOPIC: SOCIAL MEDIA MISUSE ON THE RISE BY ATTORNEYS

Between living in a society where social media is ubiquitous and being subject to an ethical obligation of technology competence, lawyers have more reasons than ever to be conscious of their use of social media. But where are the ethical boundary lines drawn in our Digital Age? Using real world examples drawn from cases, disciplinary actions, and the headlines, this program will look at social media misuse by lawyers and how to avoid making these missteps.

SPEAKER: JOHN BROWNING (SPENCER FANE)

John Browning is a partner in the Plano office of Spencer Fane LLP, where his practice is focused on civil trials and appeals in state and federal courts across Texas and Oklahoma.
