The BADC Young Lawyers’ Section is pleased to partner with Epiq for a CLE program and happy hour.

Nearly all of us use social media platforms in one way or another, and even if we don’t, our clients, colleagues, adversaries and competitors do. This CLE presentation will address how to use social media more effectively, including its use for investigations, in litigation and in business development while complying with our ethical duties as lawyers. Covered topics will include how to identify, preserve, collect and admit social media content into evidence while fulfilling ethical duties of competence, candor, maintaining client confidences, and supervision of other lawyers and non-lawyers. An application for one hour of Legal Ethics CLE credit is pending before the Virginia state bar, and applications for credit from other state bars may be filed upon request.

Presented by:

Our presenter will be Jeff Jacobs, Esq., a graduate of the University of Chicago Law School with over 20 years of litigation experience as an outside and in-house counsel and 10 years of experience managing or consulting on electronic discovery and information governance matters. Jeff is currently the Senior Director for Information Governance and Litigation Readiness Consulting at Epiq, where he advises clients on litigation readiness, information governance, discovery process design and validation, data preservation, and strategies for the management of complex litigation discovery matters.

Prior to joining DTI, Jeff served for seven years as Associate General Counsel for MCI, where he managed the discovery in connection with the WorldCom accounting fraud investigations and related securities litigation, the WorldCom bankruptcy, and the antitrust review of MCI’s acquisition by Verizon. He also served as counsel to the Company’s Records and Information Management (RIM) group, advising on records, data and email retention and disposition. Before that, Jeff was a Special Counsel in the litigation groups of Sullivan & Cromwell’s Washington, DC office and DLA Piper’s Washington, DC office.

Jeff has presented numerous CLE programs on litigation readiness, electronic discovery, records management and ethical issues in discovery, cyber-security and the use of social media in litigation, and was a member of the charter (first) class to be certified as an Electronic Discovery Specialist by the Association of Certified Electronic Discovery Specialists (ACEDS).
