January 19 – Finding and Researching Expert Witnesses on the Web 
(Time: Noon- 1 PM CST)
Expert witnesses can make or break a case. In this program you will learn which types of experts will help you win your case, where to find qualified experts, how to uncover information about the opposing experts using the resources on the Internet.

Attendees will learn how to:
• Determine which experts are right for your case and where to them;
• Investigate opposing experts;
• Access expert witness information often overlooked by the casual researcher; and
• Locate expert witness depositions, briefs, video, and more

 This program is targeted to lawyers who use experts in all practice areas, including litigation, business, environmental, family law, and real estate. This program will be especially helpful to young and solo attorneys who want to get an edge over their opposition through discovery, depositions, and at trial.

January 22 – Ethical Issues and Implications on Lawyers’ Use of LinkedIn
(Time: Noon- 1 PM CST)
Social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn have become part of every lawyer’s daily life, and they can be helpful tools for expanding your professional presence and marketing your practice, as well as valuable investigative tools. But the same ethical rules that govern lawyers’ conduct also apply to their use of social media, and that can raise some concerns for lawyers in their use of these tools.

This webinar will focus on the ethical use of LinkedIn as a marketing and professional development tool, but will also touch on broader ethical pitfalls in lawyers’ use of social media in general, both for marketing purposes and as a litigation tool, discussing some of the rules and opinions that apply.

Some of these issues are:
• Is your LinkedIn Profile Advertising?
• Staying away from false or misleading statements
• Do you need a disclaimer on your LinkedIn profiles?
• How do the solicitation rules apply to LinkedIn?
• Do the “specialties” and “Skills and Endorsements” sections of LinkedIn raise ethical problems?
• Should I ask for client recommendations on LinkedIn?
• Confidentiality issues - what you can and cannot say about clients and cases on LinkedIn and how to communicate ethically with potential clients
• Unauthorized practice of law and inadvertent attorney-client relationships
• Who lawyers can and should connect to on social media
