Social media: Risks and best practices (Webinar)

Dec 19, 2018

Social media is all-pervasive; it has quickly infiltrated virtually every aspect of our day-to-day lives – both personal and professional. With these innovative ways of communicating and interacting come a whole host of legal and reputational risks and considerations. Today, more than ever, it’s essential that in-house legal teams gain a thorough understanding of those risks so they can ensure they have the necessary strategies and policies in place to address them.

In the fourth webinar of the Best practices for the legal department of tomorrow series developed by Osler’s Litigation and Dispute Resolution team, Sven Poysa, a partner in the firm’s Employment and Labour Group, Evan Thomas, Counsel in the Litigation Group, and Sonja Pavic, a litigation associate in the firm’s Toronto office, provide valuable insight into the range of risks associated with social media use and offer best practice recommendations on dealing with them effectively.

  • Understand the various considerations to take into account when weighing the possible legal responses to social media issues
  • Assess the roles and responsibilities of your legal and public relations teams in the social media context
