Blogs by Attorneys as Advertising?
This just in: New York is considering passing an ethics rule which would make lawyer blogs advertising. Under one proposal, attorneys would be required to file copies of their web communications (including blogs) with the attorney disciplinary committee. For more click here. Did you know attorney advertisements are generally tightly regulated by state committees? Well, now you do. And while this proposal looks limited to New York, it's been true with ethics proposals in the past that where New York goes the rest of the states eventually follow.
