MeLegalFi: looking for examples of social media usage amongst legal professionals in the UK
posted by freya_lamb to computers & internet (8 answers total) 2 users marked this as a favorite
I work for a legal organisation interested in harnessing the mighty power of web-based social media apps. However, the project is up against a strong internal perception of lawyers as lacking the interest and/or aptitude to engage (e.g. "Twitter is for geeks"). I'd like to open up the debate a bit by showing examples of these tools working well. I keep up with some great blogs e.g. Binary law, Naked Law, Geek lawyer, Ipkat etc, and I've found Legal tweets and lawtweets, but it seems slim pickings considering the range of platforms out there.
So I'm appealing to the hive mind to signpost any gems I'm missing - UK flavours preferred. Any thoughts on thoughts on content preference and/or likely uptake also very welcome.
