Program Description

Almost every successful attorney networks. And there is simply no bigger platform than the Internet's largest business-oriented social networking site--LinkedIn. With more than 240 million users (nearly 80% of whom are 35 years or older), LinkedIn has become the most valuable and effective business development tool in existence. However, many lawyers find the task of setting up a profile, inviting and accepting connections, building a network, joining groups, avoiding ethical missteps and seeking recommendations and endorsements daunting. It is not.

In just 90 minutes, Dennis Kennedy and Allison Shields, authors of Linkedin in One Hour for Lawyers, will give you the tools and information to best position yourself on one of the most recognized websites in Corporate America. Whether you are a first-time user or seeking to better benefit from your LinkedIn visibility, this ABA Center for Professional Development webinar will put you on the road to greater success. Learn how prospective clients and referring attorneys will reach out to you with legal matters, headhunters will find you with job offers and colleagues will come here first for reliable biographical and contact information.
