Hricik on the Ethics of Lawyer Blogging: Not Just the Ad Wars

Posted by Alan Childress

David Hricik (Mercer) has posted to SSRN his classic 2006 study of blawging, which considers but goes beyond the emerging [now hotbed, in New York and previously Florida] issues of whether law blogs are "advertising."  The title is "Ethics of Blawging," and the abstract is equally succinct:

Addresses the legal ethical issues that face lawyers who blog (or blawg), including the potential for disclosure of client confidences, inadvertent formation of attorney-client relationships, and the unauthorized practice of law.

[Update:  The watchdog group Public Citizen filed suit yesterday to challenge the new NY bar rules.]
