Social Media

Multiethnic People in a Meeting with Social Media SymbolsJMI is dedicated to creating custom social media training that responds to the needs of your organization, leadership, and resources. We offer face to face, web, and hybrid instruction. Moreover, unlike other social media education, our unique program includes training on how social media can affect multiple areas of your organization including communications, ethics, security, human resources, policy, and public outreach.

According to a recent article from the ABA’s Legal Technology Resource Center “[m]uch of the difficulty with implementing new technology comes from a lack of practical, effective training.”[1] Our training has one goal in mind – social media literacy for the justice leader, employee, and organization.

Education & Training

Social Media Literacy for the Justice Leader and Employee. The Justice Management’s social media education and training courses provide justice leaders and practitioners with the information and knowledge they need to meet the following challenges:

  • Engage with the public on social media channels like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and YouTube;
  • Maintain judicial security and Internet safety, including specialized social media training for judges and their families;
  • Create social media policies and communication strategies;
  • Provide better access to justice using mobile and web-based social media applications;
  • Define user trends and how they will affect your organization;
  • Develop a Continuity of Operations (COOP) Strategic plan using social media; and
  • Avoid a social media crisis due to improper employee behavior or public comment on social media sites.
