Academic Research Regarding How Social Media May Affect Access To Legal Information

I was recently contacted by Marcela Monroy, a fellow lawyer who is furthering her legal education by studying for a Master in Legal Sociology. As part of her studies, she has a created an "academic survey to explore the impact of social networks (forums, blogs, chats, message boards, etc) and the way people access legal information regarding any issue or injurious experience."

I encourage everyone who reads this blog to take the survey. It takes a few minutes of your time and it will assist a fellow lawyer out with her research. In addition, the survey may help answer some questions about how social media has affected access to legal information.

Here is a link to Ms. Monroy's survey in English, Spanish, and French.

If anyone is interested in assisting Ms. Monroy further with her research please contact me via email and I will forward your information over to Ms. Monroy.
