In March 2013, Core Legal commissioned Core Legal member firm IRN Research (  to interview 140 solicitors across law firms of all sizes to ascertain their use of, and interest in, networking sites and social media.

LinkedIn popular with a majority of solicitors but little use of other social media

A majority – 56% – are on LinkedIn, but no other networking or social media tool is used by a majority.  Most solicitors on LinkedIn and other sites are mainly re-active users rather than pro-active users. In other words, they are more likely to be looking at content on these sites rather than adding content.

Just over a third (36%) say they add content once a week or more but over twice as many (74%) look at content once a week or more.  Another 33% only add content a few times a year.
