Guam - Social media is everywhere, and it's something even the Guam Bar must address.

Keynote speaker for the Annual District Conference held today was Circuit Judge M. Margaret McKeown of the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals.

"Social media is really ubiquitous at this point and we're finding that lawyers in particular are on social media. Jurors are on social media. So we're trying to balance the considerations of making sure that if you're part of an institution - whether it's the Judiciary, the Prosecutor's Office, the Defender's Office - that whatever you're doing on social media is making sure you're reflecting the dignity of the office," she said.

Over 120 local lawyers and judges were in attendance with participants eligible to receive as many as seven and a half hours of continuing legal education credits.
