On Friday, I moderated We Want You (in Our Network) at the NALP Annual Education Conference. The panel consisted of practicing lawyers, law students and a legal reporter. As illustrated in the tweet below, many attendees appreciated the students’ thoughts on how law schools and law firms are using social media, including what the students would like to see from law schools and law firms.
Since the topic of the panel involved social media, I asked law students on Twitter to share how they would like to see law schools and firms use social media Here are a few ideas shared by the student panelists and those who participated via Twitter.
- Post profiles of local lawyers.
- Inform students about local events (not limited to events hosted by the legal industry or school).
- Share bar exam pass rates.
