Are you a social media lurker? Or do you tweet with the proficiency of the POTUS? Regardless of where you fall on the social media spectrum, the CCLA’s “Social Media Social” is for lawyers, paralegals, and legal marketing professionals who wish to leverage the power of social media to: increase their visibility; enhance their reputation; and further their legal career.

The Ottawa legal community has some of Canada’s best legal bloggers, tweeters, and podcasters. In 2016, the Canadian Law Blog Awards (the “Clawbies”) named no fewer than five Ottawa law blogs as among the best in Canada within their respective categories. This half-day conference with reception to follow is part celebration, part education.

Concerned about your ability to post comments to social media given where you work? Already online, but looking to step up your social media game? Learn tips and tricks about: Twitter, setting up your own blog while starting your own law firm, and even entering the world of podcasting.  We'll also look at some of the potential pitfalls of social media, including the risk of ‘overshare’ and the Federal Court’s decision in A.T. v., 2017 FC 114. Does your law firm have a Twitter account? You need to be aware of a recent decision that suggests that you need to monitor what people are saying about your staff. Thinking about using your firm’s blog to be critical? Learn where free speech stops and defamation begins.

This conference promises to be the best conference. It will have the best speakers, and believe us, we know great speakers. #Excellence
