He will also discuss how to correctly locate, preserve and authenticate online content, and why a printed copy of something online is insufficient to produce as evidence. The discussion also includes ethical discussions on what you should/shouldn’t be doing in regards to sending “friend” requests or other communications with subjects of the investigation. Case law discussed will include what happens when law firms give no advice or bad advice to their clients regarding how to handle their social media accounts during litigation.
