Lawyers May Be Required To Understand Social Media


(PRWEB) March 10, 2015 — GNGF will partner with the Chicago Bar Association to update lawyers on a recent comment to the ABA Model Rule 1.1 regarding the information a lawyer must have to competently practice law. The half-day Marketing Competence Continuing Legal Education seminar will cover crucial information about relevant technology, including social media, and will count for three hours of professionalism credits in Illinois.

In order for a lawyer to properly advise his or her client on legal matters, it makes sense that they should understand the networks their clients use on a daily basis. This would certainly include social media, considering there are hundreds of millions of Americans using this medium everyday. And that is what this program is about: helping lawyers increase their knowledge of technology and social channels with regards to the ABA rules, as well as the ethics of being online as a law firm. said, Jabez LeBret, CMO of GNGF.

In an effort to maintain the integrity of the law profession, The CBA supports and provides CLEs that explain new developments in the legal industry. As a law firm marketing and educational company, GNGF provides valuable information about the boundaries for lawyer marketing.

The event will take place on March 26, 2015, from 1:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the Hotel Allegro, located at 171 W. Randolph Street, Chicago, Il 60601.
