Lawyers have traditionally been slow to adopt new technology, and this is demonstrated acutely with the rise of social media in the general culture. Lawyers are rightly aware of many of the pitfalls of social media. However, if certain limitations are kept in mind, social media can be a cost-free, easy and powerful tool for personal knowledge management and networking. Law firm administration can help support lawyers and other legal professionals through the use of education, social media policies and technology.
This session is meant for law firm administrators who want to familiarize themselves with the pro’s and con’s of social media, provide tips on creating a social media policy and address some of the management-level concerns with social media usage. Our Speaker
: Kathleen is a Practice Support Lawyer at Cassels Brock. She facilitates the design and implementation of organizational and technical structures to support the firm’s culture of knowledge sharing. Kathleen is an expert on the establishment of effective social media policies and procedures.
