Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and other forms of social media have transformed how we communicate. From personal relationships to professional interactions, social media has had a dramatic impact on virtually every facet of society, including the law. A new book, "Social Media in a Nutshell," written by University of Dayton School of Law Professor Thaddeus Hoffmeister and University of Texas Social Media Law Professor Ryan Garcia, shows the wide-ranging influence social media has on criminal investigations, jury selection and other aspects of our legal system. 

Professor Thaddeus Hoffmeister joins us to discuss how social media has affected the law.
