May 26 –The Ethics of Social Media Research
(Time: Noon- 1 PM CST)
Learn how to avoid potential ethical traps when you research social media profiles for investigative/background purposes and to use as evidence. The seminar is partially based on the speakers' fifty-five page Social Media chapter from their book, "The Cybersleuth's Guide to the Internet."
Carole Levitt and Mark Rosch will review:
• Social Media Research Ethical Guidelines
• State Bar, Local Bar, and ABA Ethics Opinions
• Cases Decided in Various States
• How They All Tie into the ABA Model Rules of Professional Conduct
The program will also explore:
• Who's your friend? Could "friending" violate the deception or ex parte communication ethical rules?
• Whether it is ethical to research the social media profiles of parties and witnesses during discovery or trial?
• Whether it is ethical to research the social media profiles of potential jurors before trial or seated jurors before and during trial?
• If advising clients to delete, deactivate, or adjust privacy settings on their social networking accounts lead to an ethical violation
or spoliation charge?
• Configuring security/privacy settings in your own profile to avoid ethical breaches.
