  • Social Networking in Litigation

    $75.00
    In this whopping 110-page paper, the author points out that users of social networking sites are tripping over themselves to share their personal details on-line. He argues that this phenomenon requires that the practice of law adapt and recognize that: social networking sites are a gold mine of information and even evidence for litigation counsel; clients must be advised to protect themselves; and the same ethical principles apply whether one works in hard copy or in e-space. Complete with citations, this is a fascinating read.
