Benjamin Cooper

Abstract (to read the entire article go here): 

Can lawyers advise their clients what to post on social media and to “clean up” what they have previously posted? This short article, which will appear as the Correspondent’s Report from the United States in the journal Legal Ethics, argues that the lawyer’s duty of competence requires that they know how to answer these questions. The article also discuss two recent ethics opinions that help lawyers fulfill that duty.
