Free Webinar: Social Media And Its Impact on Discovery in Civil Litigation
Title: Social Media And Its Impact on Discovery in Civil Litigation
Date: Thursday, November 6, 2014
Time: 10:00 AM-11:15 AM PST
The California Attorney General's Office is presenting a free webinar for attorneys and law school students on the impact of social media in the litigation process. In recent years social media has crept its way into the litigation spotlight and now requires the attention of attorneys, litigants, jurors and the court in the prosecution of any litigation. Matters related to social media have resulted in mistrials due to juror misconduct in disseminating case information over Twitter or Facebook, key admissions have been obtained against litigants through posts to public profiles, and posts by litigants and their friends have had significant impacts upon damages claims. Litigators must now learn how to utilize social media in the discovery process, how to address it in jury instructions, and most importantly, how to advise their clients in the effect it has to the success of a litigation.
Space is limited. Reserve your Webinar seat now at: https://www2.gotomeeting.com/register/737601274.
