What is Legal Advertising Placement?
Legal advertising is, in a nutshell, simply advertising done by lawyers and law firms.This term can be broadened to include advertising, as well as other practices such as client relations, cross-selling and public relations. It has a long history in the United States and, though it is legal, it is subject to ethical rules by state bar associations. Some common forms of lawyer advertising includes commercials on TV and the radio, print ads, billboard advertising and direct mail marketing. Law firm websites are also considered to be a part of the legal advertising spectrum.
The first ethical codes were established in 1908, which condemned all advertising done by lawyers. These codes were revisited in 1969 due to progression of the profession and the updated code set to create more practical rules, rules that also were more geared towards the relationship between the lawyer and his clients, or prospective clients. The laws guiding advertising went to court to decipher what was legal and what was not, These early stages occurred in the late 1970s and ruled that advertising by lawyers was partially protected under the First Amendment and that being kept from advertising about their profession can be harmful to society as a whole, due to the need of lawyer services. However, certain marketing practices are illegal. Some attempts at marketing that could violate the laws are shock advertising or directly soliciting clients.
