    Social networks for attorneys

    I need to identify some social networks that are being used by attorneys and / or soon-to-graduate law students. Any advice on how I can track those down?

    thanks!

    OK ... I'll answer my own question ... I tracked down a few that are specific to lawyers: lawlink.com, legalonramp.com and martindale.com, which runs a private networking site called martindale-hubbell connected. LinkedIn is popular among attorneys, too, apparently. If anybody has any other thoughts, please pass them along. Specificially, I'm looking for ways to put online job listings in front of attorneys ... Thanks!

    Try contacting Darrin Mish from GetIRSHelp.com He may be able to share a few of his online networks that he uses.

    Mark: I recommend reaching out to @KLFLegal on Twitter. He specializes in social media law among other things and is highly active on the relevant networks. He's also a very nice guy and always willing to help. Also, I recommend checking out this Social Media Networking Guide for Attorneys -> http://www.newlegalnetworking.com/ Good luck! @CPollittIU

    Chad ... thanks for referring me to Kenan ... He was helpful, but likely doesn't have the precise expertise I'm seeking. I could, however, use a few comments about how attorneys in general are using social media these days. Based on your work on NewLegalNetworking, perhaps you could help me. Do you have some time to chat? Hit me on twitter @mwhit14. Thanks!

    Do you find that attorneys prefer some of these smaller niche sites for social media versus LinkedIn and Facebook?* I would think their presence would have more impact on the larger type of networks.

    Mark, doesn't targeted Facebook Ads work for your needs? I would imagine that attorneys and law students would identify themselves and you could advertising to each group with targeted messaging.

    Hi Brandon,

    Thanks for your reply. I wasn't actually trying to reach lawyers with an advertising message. Was really looking for some examples of social networks for lawyers from some research I was conducting at the time.

    Best,
