Vol. 5 No. 10
It is hard to believe that until a few years ago, a tweet was just the chirping of a bird and making a new friend was a bit more involved than clicking a button. Like much of society, today more and more legal professionals are making use of web based technologies to interact and network online. In fact, according to Nielsen research, social media and blog related activity now accounts for more than 22 percent of all time spent online.
Recognizing this trend and the influence that social media has in our daily lives, the Law Center is working on an integrated strategy to continually improve its communications to students, faculty, alumni, and the legal community through our social media presences on Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, and YouTube.

On a personal note, I want to extend a big thanks to UHLC alum Benjamin Sanchez for the great job he did to get our LinkedIn group started. I encourage others to please continue to share your ideas as we strive to build even broader and more active online communities.
I am proud, although a little nervous, to be ushering in another new era in how we interact with you and with the broader community.
