The social media outlets are nearly endless: Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, LinkedIn, Twitter, Blogs, etc. Now imagine that you are involved in a lawsuit.

Title IX cases based on allegations of sexual assault and/or harassment have ethical, privacy, and discovery issues that are unlike most other litigation. The paralegal working on a Title IX case, whether plaintiff or defendant, needs to be cognizant of the potential bounds of discovery when dealing with the transient nature of the student population, the potential existence of discovery on private devices, and the danger of disclosure that violates federal privacy laws and court protective orders.

 In 2018, the import of social media as a transformative technological, cultural, and political phenomenon is no longer in dispute. Nor has the law been immune from its impact. Indeed, under various state professional codes, lawyers are subject to an ongoing duty of competence to keep abreast of changes in the law and its practice, including the benefits and risks associated with technology such as social media.
