Professional Ethics and Social Media: Like?

26th Annual Conference of the Professions

The 26th Annual Conference of the Professions examined the issues surrounding social media and took a sophisticated look at its effects on law, medicine and the clergy. The goal was not to teach professionals how to use social media, but rather to look at the more serious issues of its use. For nearly three decades, the Conference of Professions has brought together members of law, medicine, and theology in the Dallas area to discuss common challenges - ethical and otherwise - facing these professions. The Cary M. Maguire Center for Ethics & Public Responsibility jointly sponsors this activity with the Dallas County Medical Society, Dallas Bar Association, University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, SMU Dedman School of Law, and the SMU Perkins School of Theology.


Date: October 14, 2011

Location: Prothro Great Hall, SMU

Keynote Speaker: Carrie James

Panel Discussion features John Browning, Dusty Craig and Dan McCoy, and moderated by Rita Kirk, SMU Professor and Director of the Maguire Ethics Center.
