The Ethics of Social Media Research-MO012617
Thursday 26 January 2017, 06:00:00 PM Coordinated Universal Time - 07:00:00 PM Coordinated Universal Time

This program has been approved for 1.2 hours of Missouri CLE credit, including 1.2 Ethics hours.

Learn how to avoid potential ethical traps when you research social media profiles for investigative/background purposes and to use as evidence. The seminar* is partially based on the speakers’ fifty-five page Social Media chapter from their book, “The Cybersleuth’s Guide to the Internet. “

The speakers will review:
     • Social Media Research Ethical Guidelines
     • State Bar, Local Bar, and ABA Ethics Opinions
     • Cases Decided in Various States
     • How They All Tie into the ABA Model Rules of Professional Conduct

The program will also explore:
     • Who’s your friend? Could “friending” violate the deception or ex parte communication ethical rules?
     • Whether it is ethical to research the social media profiles of parties and witnesses during discovery or trial?
     • Whether it is ethical to research the social media profiles of potential jurors before trial or seated jurors before and during trial?
     • If advising clients to delete, deactivate, or adjust privacy settings on their social networking accounts lead to an ethical violation or spoliation charge? 
     • Configuring security/privacy settings in your own profile to avoid ethical breaches.

*This is a “simulive” rebroadcast of a previously recorded presentation. The presenters will be available during the rebroadcast to answer questions.

This program has been approved for 1.2 hours of Missouri CLE credit, including 1.2 Ethics hours.
