“Cargo Cults” of the Pacific attempted to bring back the material abundance islanders had enjoyed during WWII by replicating the circumstances associated with those outcomes. Similarly, attorney regulators often enforce outdated legal marketing regulations despite the absence of the harms those regulations were originally designed to prevent.

Lawyers who attend this webinar will learn:

  • How historic prohibitions on “runners and cappers” are being used to squelch performance-based advertising methods.
  • The prevalence of mechanically applying rules in situations where there is no risk of consumer harm.
  • A new approach bars could use to protect consumers AND the free speech rights of attorneys.

*Please note, CLE credit will only be given to those that attend the session live.
