CALI workshop on "best practices" for social media

Social_media_starfish Social media--that is, sites and applications like Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, and the like--bring new ways to connect and communicate with others, but they also bring new challenges.

This summer's CALI conference at the University of Colorado (Boulder, CO) has added a new program of interest to law school administrators and professors: Social Media Best Practices Workshop for Law Schools. The workshop is set to take place the first full day of the conference (Thursday, June 18). Its goal is to to help law schools develop a better understanding of these technologies, as well as suggested guidelines for law schools regarding the use of social media.

Presently on the panel are keynote speaker John Palfrey, Professor of Law and Vice Dean of Library and Information Resources at Harvard Law School, as well as a Faculty Co-Director at the Berkman Center for Internet and Society, and Iowa law student Laura Bergus, one of the contributors to the Social Media Law Student blog.
