Manage Your Online Presence

A guide for law students to manage online presence while preparing for a professional career

Introduction

What is Your Online Presence?

  • Your online presence is your personal image or brand online.  It is the sum of all the information available about you on the web.  
  • It is information that you post about yourself and information that others post about you with or without your knowledge and consent.   
  • It is you at your best, announcing your personal and professional achievements.
  • It is your “digital dirt”, or the unflattering photos and information about you. 

Why is it Important Now?

Law students prepare to enter a profession where professional reputation and ethical behavior are paramount.  Now is the time to take control of your online presence.  Later, use it to your advantage as a student, as job seeker and as an attorney.
