The Advocate is a quarterly publication of the Litigation Section of the State Bar of Texas. Every publication addresses hot topics and trends in litigation in the State of Texas. The Fall 2012 issue will be no different when it addresses Social Media and The Law.
The editoral board did a great job lining up experienced authors on a topic that is very relevant today in Texas, and the nation, for that matter. Just to give you a sample of a few of the topics that will be discussed, the Fall 2012 issue will address discovery, evidence and ethics issues (for both lawyers and judges) as they relate to the use of social media, as well as, how social media can effect jury trials (both the use of social media by lawyers to learn about the background of potential jurors and the use of social media by jurors during trials). It really should be a great issue.
