Goodwin Procter attorney and KM guru Doug Cornelius, Morrison Mahoney IT director Jenn Steele and I will team up Oct. 2 in Boston for a panel on social networking for lawyers and legal IT staff sponsored by the International Legal Technology Association. The lunchtime panel is free to attend and open to ILTA members and non-members alike.

More information about the event and registration is available at this ILTA page.

Doug and I were half of a four-person panel on social and professional networking last week for the New York Legal Marketing Association. As another of the NY panelists, John Lipsey of LexisNexis, noted on The Official Blog of Martindale-Hubbell, attendees there showed great interest in the topic. “Here was a room filled, to standing-room-only capacity, with legal marketers eager to embrace and make sense out of professional networking,” Lipsey wrote.
