Friends and Followers: An Attorney’s Ethical Use of Social Media in Tennessee - On-Demand

Webinar now available on-demand.

There is no “dos and don’ts” manual for attorneys to consult to decide how they can and cannot use social media to better serve themselves and their clients. 

The American Bar Association has issued ethics opinions on some topics, ethics panels in various states have issued opinions as well, and courts around the nation have addressed some matters. But many ethical questions have no clear-cut answer. 

Consider these recent examples: 

  • According to a 2011 New York State Bar Association opinion, an attorney shall not “solicit” business from the public through instant messaging and chat rooms. 
  • According to a 2012 New Hampshire Bar Association Ethics Advisory Commission opinion, an attorney may request permission to view non-public portions of an unrepresented person’s website or profile. 
  • According to a 2012 Tennessee Judicial Ethics Commission advisory opinion, Tennessee judges may participate in social media but must do so with caution. 

Eileen Burkhalter Smith, disciplinary counsel with the Tennessee Board of Professional Responsibility, addressed ethical challenges presented by social media and offer guidelines for compliance with the Rules of Professional Conduct, now available on-demand.
