I have made some errors in posting and copying news links from unreliable sources. Recently, we have been discussing who is running the Conservative Treehouse and what bias, agendas or games may have been put in play. We are reminded to look at all things critically and be aware before taking opinions and statements as fact. It’s quite interesting to look at the Zimmerman case using the same set of facts and see how each of us interpret them so differently.
Jan L. Jacobowitz, a lecturer in law and the director of the Professional Responsibility & Ethics Program at the University of Miami School of Law and Danielle Singer, a fellow in the Professional Responsibility & Ethics Program and a 2014 JD candidate at University of Miami School of Law, published this paper on August 13, 2013.
In it they write about how slow traditionally, legal firms were to embrace the change in technology. The phone, fax and email. They write how the Zimmerman defense created new ground in establishing a website, facebook and twitter accounts and how social media played a role in jury selection and witness testimony.
Here is their full paper and their conclusions. What do you think? Embrace the change…..Ignore the technology….or establish the rules for fair and equitable use of the new social reality?
