Like many lawyers (and 225 million other LinkedIn users), you may have a profile on LinkedIn, but do you really know what to do with it? Beyond putting up an online “résumé” and adding connections to your professional network, do you know all the ways that LinkedIn can help you in your career? In this essential program on LinkedIn for Lawyers, learn how to leverage the world’s largest professional network to boost your own practice and profile! Whether you are a new or long-term user, this CLE program will give you helpful instructions and useful strategies for taking advantage of all of LinkedIn’s features, including navigating LinkedIn’s new interface, maximizing your profile, and connecting with referral sources, former classmates, former practice colleagues, peers, experts, and others, in effective, mutually beneficial ways.

After attending this practical session, you will be able to:

Understand the many ways lawyers use LinkedIn and find the way(s) that work best for you

Know the “Three Essential Building Blocks” of LinkedIn and how to use them to get the most value for the time you spend on LinkedIn

Design and optimize your LinkedIn profile to create a strong professional social media presence

Engage LinkedIn in the job search, recruiting, and interviewing processes

Develop focused, strategic approaches to networking with others on LinkedIn

Use powerful advanced features of LinkedIn that many users are not even aware of

Take advantage of new features (such as Endorsements), interface changes, and mobile applications to take your use of LinkedIn to a new level

Boost your professional presence and establish your niche among the 225+ million members of the LinkedIn community
