The Law Society has issued an updated practice note on the use of social media by legal professionals. It includes guidance on ethical considerations, online social networking, benefits/risks and setting a social media policy.

Social media is increasingly popular and the legal profession must keep up to date with developments, which can present real opportunities if harnessed effectively. In particular, clients may expect that the profession should also embrace it as part of its working practices.

The updated guidance brings you a clearer definition of social media, more information on the benefits and risks of using social media and new case studies on how social media is being used within the profession.
