I wanted to point you to what should be a great webinar on Thursday (August 19) from the ABA Law Practice Management Section and the ABA Center for Continuing Legal Education called “Creating Your Online Presence.”

The webinar features as speakers the noted experts Tom Mighell and Dave Bilinsky. I’ll be part of the webinar as moderator of the session. I’ve seen the slides already and can tell you that you can expect to learn a lot from this presentation.

Here’s the program description:

In this digital era, clients and prospects expect lawyers to be savvy about their firm’s Web presence. Learn from our experts how to create an effective online presence that works for your practice, your clients and your target audience. Determine which options are wise, based upon your areas of practice, geographical location and your “online personality.” Adding your firm to online directories/legal directories such as Facebook, LinkedIn, Avvo, RocketLawyer and Justia will be discussed. Our speakers will also discuss how to setup a blog and whether this is a helpful service to your clients or prospective clients. The pros and cons of using free or lawyer-specific blogging platforms will be part of this discussion. You will walk away from this session with the ability to take the social media plunge, having seen practical examples of how to setup your own Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn accounts. Take the plunge!

The webinar will take place on Thursday, August 19 at 1:00 PM-2:30 PM Eastern (12:00 PM-1:30 PM Central; 11:00 AM-12:30 PM Mountain; 10:00 AM-11:30 AM Pacific).

Registration and other details may be found here.

There’s a nice discount for ABA Law Practice Management Section members. Even better, there’s a nice discount for ABA members who join the LPM Section in connection with this webinar – definitely a win-win proposition.

Hope to “see” you at the webinar. As moderator, if you want to send me a question ahead of time, please do so.
