Book Description
Written by a veteran litigator and leading expert on law and social media, The Lawyer's Guide to Social Networking provides a comprehensive look at how social media is affecting the legal system. This book examines the myriad ways in which information from sites like Facebook, MySpace, and Twitter is being put to use in everything from criminal and family law matters to personal injury, employment, and commercial cases nationwide. The author illustrates how the pervasive social networking phenomenon is redefining traditional notions of jurisdiction, duty, service of process, and legal ethics while using actual trial and appellate level cases to analyze the discoverability and admissibility of social media evidence.
Lawyers in virtually all practice areas will appreciate not only the author's practical advice, but also the insights into social media's value as a tool for marketing one's practice. This book also examines such cutting edge issues as the implications of social media's use for judges as well as jurors. By providing readers with a thorough look at how living life online can provide attorneys on both sides of the bar with a digital treasure trove of information, The Lawyer's Guide to Social Networking is an invaluable resource for practitioners everywhere.
