LinkedIn: issues over inaccurate endorsements are being looked at by the ABA Asif Islam
The professional ethics committee of the Association says in an opinion this month that inaccurate endorsements and recommendations should be edited out. For example, a family lawyer who has no experience of international transactions might need to cut out endorsements in the latter area.
The opinion gives views on other aspects of LinkedIn profiles. It says, for instance, that some parts of profiles might need to be labelled as advertising. These might included subjective testimonials from clients or comments from colleagues. Source: ABA
