** available at any time of day and in time increments convenient to you through date referenced above **, together with the Houston Bar Association (HBA), are pleased to present a special online CLE program on a cutting edge topic in the area of litigation. The widespread use of social media creates new opportunities-- and pitfalls-- for litigators of all types. Should you advise your client to stop tweeting while his lawsuit is pending? Can you get discovery of the plaintiff's Facebook posts about her vacation? Does your litigation hold need to include social media content? Can you look at a juror's LinkedIn profile? This seminar will address these as well as other hot social media issues. This course features a streaming audio (as well as a downloadable MP3 audio) presentation from a live CLE seminar on this topic that was originally conducted by the Houston Bar Association (HBA) on January 17, 2014. You can access this presentation on demand at any time during the course of the seminar session. This course is approved for 1.5 MCLE credit hours.

Through the hypothetical sexual harassment case of

'Paula Plaintiff v. Deep Pocket Airlines',

this presentation covers various social media issues that are likely to come up in litigation, including:

* When to issue a litigation hold, when the duty to preserve evidence arises, and application of the duty to preserve to social media content

* How to advise clients on the use of social media during litigation

* Discovery of social media, typical objections to social media discovery, and the scope of social media discovery when a party's emotional state is at issue

* Ethics of lawyer use of social media to investigate witnesses and jurors, as well as reporting jury misconduct involving social media

* Admissibility of social media evidence
