    Webinar: Social Media Ethics for School Attorneys

    Time: Noon to 1:00 p.m.
    Price: $110 per person


    Christie R. Jacobson will co-present a seminar on the topic of school attorneys and their law firms are using social media platforms such as LinkedIn, YouTube, and Twitter to connect with both current and prospective clients.
