I would like to invite you to the upcoming conference on Blog Law and Blogging for Lawyers to be held April 20–21 in San Francisco. LINK.
I am very excited to be the co-chair of the conference, which is the first comprehensive CLE to look at blogging both as a marketing tool for attorneys and as a legal area. My co-chair Cathy Kirkman of Wilson Sonsini is a great attorney and full of ideas in this area.
- Legal gray areas arising from the proliferation of Web logs
- The future of blogging — a passing fad or here to stay?
- The extent to which bloggers qualify for the First Amendment protections afforded to journalists
- Content ownership and syndication issues
- Employment issues arising from blogging within corporations
- The latest in blogging technology, including audio and video feeds
- How to set up a blog for your law firm or make your current blog more effective
- How blogs differ from regular Web sites in generating traffic — and business — for your firm
- Ethics questions surrounding the blog as a law firm marketing tool
- PLUS an on-the-ground report from several law firm bloggers
We have been lucky with the help of Law Seminars International (LSI) to put together an amazing faculty and the peer group of bloggers and attending attorneys will make this a very special event.
Feel free to contact me with any questions.
