ABA evaluating social networking ethics rules

The ABA Commission on Ethics has come out with a working paper that outlines issues related to social networking.  Already its garner a rather vehement response from Larry Bodine who sees it as a threat to lawyers ability to engage in social networking.

I don’t see it that way.  I think its important that strong, thoughtful, useful guidelines be established for attorney use of social networking so that those who are reluctant to engage and those who have engage but are nervous can feel assured that there is clarity going forward on this issues.

Make sure you comment!  I will.
