Professional Development Series
The Professional Development Series is a weekly podcast series devoted to our newly sworn in attorneys and young lawyers. The PDS will present programs bringing basic skills training, introducing the business of the law, educating on mental health issues, and showcasing long term career options. Programs will come from a variety of sources locally and from around the country. If you are interested in contributing content, contact Chris Fortier at email@example.com.
Essentials of Social Media Policies
“Have you ever had that moment when you saw that post that made you shudder?” The Professional Development Series is pleased to present to you the creator of the Series and social media master, Chris Fortier, Esquire, as he discusses the importance of a social media policy for organizations. Do not let your clients be the “test case” in the quickly evolving area of Social Media Law.
