    LAPA’s Litigation Sections Presents:

                                   Presented by Joshua Schein, Esq.

    Social media is everywhere these days, especially in litigation. Social media plays a key role in starting litigation, and sometimes ending it. From discovery of (alleged) wrongdoing, proper preservation and punishment for spoliation, and through presentation in trial, every aspect of litigation is affected by social media. This presentation will examine how social media plays a role in the profession from both a practical and a procedural standpoint.

    Joshua D. Schein earned his Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of California at Berkeley, and his Juris Doctorate from the UCLA School of Law. He began his career with the New York office of Latham & Watkins. After leaving Latham & Watkins, Mr. Schein joined the Los Angeles litigation department of Glaser Weil where he handled high-end business and entertainment litigation. Mr. Schein joined Rosen Saba, LLP, in 2014 and represents a wide range of clients from large corporate entities to individuals in business, entertainment, employment, and consumer litigation. Mr. Schein is admitted to practice law in California and New York.
