This course features streaming video and audio (as well as downloadable MP3) presentations from a live CLE seminar on this topic that was originally conducted by the Austin Bar Association on June 26, 2015. You can access this presentation on demand at any time during the course of the seminar session.

Some of the subjects for this course include:

  • Social Media Platforms: Blogs, Twitter, Facebook

  • Speech Regulation

  • Social Media Ads

  • Professionalism

  • Client Confidences
