This group explores the risk presented by unfettered postings into social networks. The risk is serious, pervasive, and increasing. Existing policies are unlikely to cover evolving situations, but even assuming existing policies are in place, enforcement can be problematic. The group will gather publicly posted policies and develop a policy template that includes best practices and talking points.
This is a report from the ABA Commission on Ethics 20/20. Their stated purpose is to provide guidance regarding the "accelerating pace of technological innovation and the increase in globalized law practice," which "raise serious questions about whether existing ethical rules and regulatory structures adequately address the realities and challenges of 21st Century law practice."
Many of the questions asked on this report would make fantastic discussions here in Connected. Please feel free to ask them on our Public Forums or here in this group's forum.
