Legal professionals worldwide are being invited to participate in this 2009 Networks for Counsel study during the Spring. The purpose of this study is to examine the penetration and use of social media by lawyers and track the adoption and use of social media by legal practitioners. Do lawyer use social media professionally? What value or benefits do they experience, if any, from integrating social media into their practice? What are the main activities lawyers engage in when using social media and professional networks? And, what impact do they anticipate social media will have upon the business and practice of law? These are the key questions this research effort is analyzing.
