I spent the past two days at Legal Tech West Coast Conference talking about how Lawyers and their firms or organizations can best use social media in their practice and was part of a great panel presentation with John Lipsey, VP, Martindale-Hubbell, Mark Beese, CEO, Leadership for Lawyers, and David Gottlieb, No Fault Paradise.
I was really excited to share some of the “hot off the press” findings from the 2009 Networks for Counsel Study. This is an annual international, industry wide study that Leader Networks conducts on behalf of LexisNexis Martindale-Hubbell. We have yet to release the complete findings – they will be shared later this summer but I pulled together a few slides from the data that show great change over the past year in terms the following:
* Greater social media penetration in the legal industry,
* Strong perception change in terms of the impact of social media on the legal profession and also,
* A greater variety of social media tools being used by legal professionals compared to last year.
More to come….Thank you for reading Building Online Communities for Business by Leader Networks. We are a research and strategy consulting company that helps organizations succeed in social business and B2B online community building.
