During this program, DBA Bar Counsel, John Ruffolo and Glen R. McMurry, Partner at Dinsmore & Shohl LLP will speak on recent and common ethics violations and the Ethical Perils of Social Media.


Is social media advertising?  Are LinkedIn Endorsements really “endorsements?”  Can my posts on Facebook subject me to ethical scrutiny by my local grievance committee?  Am I “tweeting” away my license to practice law?  Make no mistake, ethical violations associated with social media use are on the rise.  For all of the utility social media brings our profession, it is important that we take steps to educate ourselves that the novelty of this technology comes at a price.


This program will provide a general overview and discuss the ethical considerations for the twenty-first century federal practitioner and judge associated with the use of social media. Utilizing a combination of interactive digital polling with the audience, recent case authority, hypotheticals, the Model Rules of Professional Conduct, and humor, participants will be guided through the ethical evaluation process associated with social media use, including evaluating which rules apply and when. This is a great opportunity to learn something new about the Ohio Rules of Professional Conduct and professional experiences.
