Litigation in the digital age presents novel and complicated ethical issues regarding social networking and internet search engines. As these sites grow in popularity, so do their value as investigative tools. However, attorneys must be aware of the ethical ramifications of exploiting these sites for potentially improper purposes, accessing information by unethical means, and the danger of inappropriate use by jurors. This conference will examine the ethical issues resulting from the use of these types of internet sites by the bench, bar, and jurors. The seminar will begin with a lecture by Ken Strutin, Esquire followed by a panel discussion. For more information visit
