Legal Ethics, Blogs, Facebook, and Other Subjects at the Missouri Solo and Small Firm Conference

How do lawyers moving into the world of blogging, social networking and Web 2.0 applications comply with ethical rules? How do you manage an increasingly complex Internet presence professionally and ethically under rules written for much simpler times?
Sara Rittman, Missouri’s Legal Ethics Counsel, and I will discuss these and other related questions in our session called “Ethical Tips on Creating an Internet Presence: Websites, Blogs, Facebook and More” at the Missouri Bar’s 13th annual Solo and Small Firm Conference.
I’ve been upping my social networking efforts in preparation for this session.
If you want to follow me on Twitter, you can see my Twitter tweets here. I’ll try to post to Twitter during the conference, despite my woeful record as a liveblogger.
I’ve also created a Facebook group for the conference that I’ll show in my presentation. A special thank you to some of my blogger pals for helping me “seed” that group.
You can also add me as a connection on LinkedIn or join groups for the book “The Lawyer’s Guide to Collaboration Tools and Technologies” on both LinkedIn and Facebook.
For a few thoughts of mine on legal ethics and lawyers using video, see my video on the topic on YouTube.
I’m also doing two presentations with Ross Kodner, which will be lots of fun. We’re presenting on e-discovery basics and, in what should be a great session, doing an unscripted “Tech Talk” Q & A session in which we’ll try to answer whatever questions our audience throws at us.
I’ll also moderate what promises to be an excellent “60 tips” session with Ross, Ellen Freedman and Nerino Petro.
I’m looking forward to all the sessions and hope to meet some of my readers there. Perhaps there will be some livebloggers there. (Speaking of liveblogging, a special tip of the hat to liveblogger extraordinaire Doug Cornelius for covering a very interesting Enterprise 2.0 conference today).

    I hope you will publish your opinions on professional and ethics standards for attorneys using Web 2.0 applications. I’m giving a CLE session for the N.C. Bar’s GP Solo/Small Firm Symposium this summer about virtual law practice using web-based, SaaS apps. which will cover ethics and technology issues. Glad to see other state bar programs addressing these topics. There need to be more professional resources for the virtual law practitioner.
