Gone are the days when you could say social media is a fad. There is no denying that social media is the latest and greatest medium to hit the business world since the telephone. Our reliance on instant information is only growing as smart phones connect us, Twitter informs us and Facebook opens us to potential litigation.
With the cutting edge content you need to ensure your organization remains safe in the uncertain waters of social media, ALM's Social Media Risks and Rewards is the legal industry's bellwether event. Current topics under research for the spring 2011 program include:
