It will also include how attorneys should (and should not) interact with judges (both online and in real life) regarding certain topics such as politics, invitations to attend events, and casual conversations that may involve matters pending before the Court. Discussion and questions will include critical and reflective judgment about an attorney’s intended conduct is portrayed online and assessing options for communication online through social media outlets.
