About the Program

Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat. With so much of our lives playing out online, your clients almost certainly have a social media presence. And courts are taking notice, with many litigants paying steep prices for careless social media posts. So what steps should we, as lawyers take, to find and use social media evidence, and what advice should we offer clients to address the growing admission and consideration of social media evidence by the courts? This new 90 minute program with Toronto litigators Jason Wadden and Sarah Stothart will explore recent treatment of social media in a wide range of cases, and offer practical advice for counseling clients on social media use. Topics include:

  • Identifying relevant social media evidence
  • Gathering and preserving existing evidence
  • Disclosure obligations
  • Educating clients on the “evolving record”
  • Ethical issues for lawyers

The pervasive nature of social media has given it a permanent place in litigation. Attend this program and get up to date information and practical pointers on how to make sure your client’s online footprint works for – not against – them!
