Blawgs and professional standards

ipcounsel blogs that the Florida Bar Association is becoming aware of blawgs. It also notes that it will monitor blawgs for professional standards: political or informational postings will probably pass muster but those soliciting custom may attract detailed scrutiny.

Geeklawyer is not entirely conversant with the professional rules in the US over advertising, other than it is permitted with qualifications, but the wider point about blawging and professional standards does need to be watched by lawyers in all jurisdictions. It is all too easy to be carried away by the intimate nature of the blawg. In the UK the rules are much more restricted than in the US as we don’t have any of that girly "freedom of speech" nonsense; we trust the Dear Leader to protect our civil liberties.

Indeed I doubt if the Bar Council has heard of the Internet let alone blawgs, so it will be a while yet before they disbar Geeklawyer for advertising. Not that anyone reading this blawg would be inclined to instruct him.
