Lawyers’ Use of Online Communities & Social Networks



he American Bar Association Litigation Section recently posted this infographic examining the use of legal technology—specifically, social networks and communities. It quantifies how much time per week lawyers spend on social networking sites for professional purposes, as well as the reasons for use within that category.

An overwhelming 68.2% of lawyers report spending less than one hour each week utilizing social networks and communities. It seems that the value found on social media is yet to be determined for the majority within the legal profession. We’d love to hear your feedback on this!
