Modern Marketing Tips for Lawyers

Join us for our next event on Modern Marketing Tips for Lawyers.

In the disrupted and fast evolving world of legal practice, marketing for law firms is not what it used to be.  To be visible to our public, we need to be delivering our firm message to prospective clients via a range of different means and opportunities.

This event is designed to breakdown some of the more common methods of delivering this message in today’s modern age and will touch on the following:

  • To Facebook or not to Facebook
  • LinkedIn and professional profiling
  • Social media posting; frequency and content
  • Website content and online engagement tools
  • Blogging and article writing
  • Getting involved – networking and events

Our presenter is our very own Founding President, Michele Davis.  Michele is a self-confessed succession nerd who has always been a very active participant in the new world of online engagement, networking and relationship building.  Michele has worked within varying legal environments, including mid-tier law firms to micro-law firms in both CBD and non-CBD firms, and each time was heavily involved in marketing for the firm and her practice group.  Michele is the founder of the very successful Australian Succession & Elder Lawyers LinkedIn Group which now boasts over 1,500 members across the country and is a legal blogger with her own blog at www.micheledavis.com.au.  Michele is also a regular speaker having presented for various conference producers, including Queensland Law Society, Legalwise, Television Education Network and The Tax Institute and also writes, on an ad hoc basis, for CCH Thomson Rueters and Legalwise publications.

EVENT: Ethics of Social Media for Law Firms – 21 February 2019

The Logan & Scenic Rim Law Association is proud to present a very worthwhile topic for the law firms of today; Ethics of Social Media for Law Firms.

This is a FREE event for our members.

We are pleased to have Les Power, legal practice director and head of litigation and dispute resolution at Wilson Lawyers, present for us on this topic. Les is a sought after presenter on ethics, property and commercial law, and professional responsibility topics for a range of conference producers, including Queensland Law Society and Legalwise.  Les has more than 20 years in private practice and is an accredited specialist in commercial litigation.  Having spent his early career as an articled clerk in Charters Towers and spending many more of his more recent years in the inner suburbs of Brisbane, Les has a unique understanding of the challenges of practice facing practitioners in both regions and the CBD. Known by his peers as their go-to ethics man, Les is a senior practitioner who prides himself in supporting and advocating for an ethical and well-regarded profession.

The practice and business of law is a different place than it was 10 years ago, and 20 years before that. We are all marketing ourselves differently and through a platform that can be both exciting and treacherous. Come along to our Ethics event to learn more about how you can be engaging with social media platforms in the best way for your practice. This is also a great opportunity to network with your local legal community.

Ethics CPD – Adventures of the Cheshire Cat – 16 Feb 2017

ethics-wordlePlease join us for our first CPD Event – The Adventures of the Cheshire Cat.

Court, Client, Colleague, Community: What are our fundamental ethic duties we owe to various stakeholders? How do we navigate confidentiality and legal professional privilege? What’s the proper basis to instigate a claim or action on behalf of your client?

This workshop will examine the question of whether we are ‘lost lawyers’. This is an opportunity for participants to review their understanding of the fundamental ethical duties we owe to various stakeholders.

In this workshop we will examine the problems the Cheshire Cat has in his representation of Arnold Becker over the ownership of a computer game.

The issues to be considered will include confidentiality, legal professional privilege, and a proper basis to instigate a claim or action on behalf of a client.

Thanks to our generous sponsors, Television Education Network, we are able to offer this event FREE to our members.

If you aren’t yet a member of the Logan & Scenic Rim Law Association, click here to visit our website and sign up today.

We will have some light refreshments for our attendees for the evening. Places are limited, so reserve your ticket now so you don’t miss out!
