Is Your LinkedIn Profile Violating the Rules of Professional Conduct?
Twice I heard warnings cautioning attorneys who use LinkedIn to be careful of how they describe themselves on their LinkedIn profiles. The concern stems from possible violations of attorney advertising rules. The "Specialties" section of the profile was of most concern. One commentator suggested that you not include any specialty unless you have obtained special certification in that area. Have you considered the professional conduct rules prior to creating your LinkedIn profile?
