Don’t put your clients at a disadvantage – learn how to use social media evidence!

Instagram. Snapchat. Facebook. Twitter. Pinterest. Meetup. The list goes on and on with much of our life being consumed by our social media interactions. Whether it’s a personal injury claim, a family law dispute, a pending bankruptcy, an employment law case, a disability claim, or a criminal justice issue – it’s no surprise that our online presence can make or break a case. Learn how to obtain social media evidence, the ethical implications to be aware of, and the basic requirements for admitting social media into evidence at trial. Topics include:

  • Why social media evidence is important today;
  • Searching for social media evidence and the issues to be aware of;
  • The Illinois Supreme Court Rules that are applicable to the discovery of social media evidence; and
  • The admissibility of social media evidence at trial and laying the proper foundation.
