The Brave New World of Lawyer Advertising

The Technology Law Section is pleased to host Amber Hollister to discuss lawyer advertising.

During this interactive presentation, we will discuss the work of the OSB Futures Task Force, and developments in the regulation of lawyer advertising and client solicitation. Today’s lawyers engage with prospective clients on social media, through online referral services, in client-lawyer matching marketplaces, as well as in more traditional forums. How can an ethical lawyer navigate this brave new world? How does our regulation of attorney advertising and solicitation impact access to justice? Bring your curiosity and perspective to this conversation about the future of our profession.
