New/Social media links for lawyers – NASABA conference

I had a blast sitting on a panel with four terrific folks at the annual North American South Asian Bar Association in Vancouver this past weekend. Doug Jasinki (@DougJasinski,, Sanjiv Kapur (, Shirish Gupta (@shirish_gupta,,  Samia Kirmani ( and I discussed who, how and why lawyers should use new and social media.

Doug and I had pulled together some links to present at the panel, but never got around to using them. As promised at the panel here they are. Hopefully they’ll prove useful for those in attendance and anyone else who happens across this post.


Five things lawyers need to know about social media

LexTweet: Legal community members who use Twitter. has a directory as well

Law Memo: A good employment law blog (and good Twitter follow, too)’s legal blog watch: a blog roll of legal blogs

The Legal Beat: a portal/aggrevator of legal information and news

LinkedIn Groups sorted by the keyword “legal”

Twitter tracking tools rounded up in a nice blog post

Law schools’ social media best practices blog post

C-Level executives social media usage report from Forbes and Google

A great legal content portal – documents, presentations, more

FriendFeed for lawyers – a blog post by a lawyer for lawyers.

Social networking for lawyers – Socialmediatoday post.

Those last two came to me from a law student on Twitter called Rex7. You can follow him on Twitter, and check out his blog.
