Can law students use MySpace effectively?

Top Law Student Blog asks can law students use MySpace effectively?

Not long ago, I recommended that law students delete their MySpace page. But I recently read on MyShingle and LexBlog about Anicia M. Ogonosky, a young lawyer who uses her myspace page to market herself.

My strongest criticism with law student MySpace pages was with the fact that law students often ignored the fact that potential employers, potential clients, and other attorneys may view their page. I was surprised how many law students posted drunk, sexual, or other questionable photos that did not market themselves in a professional light.

Ms. Ogonosky’s MySpace page is different from most students’ MySpace pages. She treats her MySpace page more like a law firm website……History will show whether Ms. Ogonosky’s MySpace page was the step of a pioneer in law marketing or merely the act of an amateur.
