I'm Blogging This

'This' is the Orange County Bar Association Legal Ethics in Cyberspace seminar. The seminar deals with lawyers who have websites for their law firms, engage in multijurisdictional practice, and send and receive emails. It also covered the potential for the electronic formation of the attorney-client relationship.

Nothing on blawgs. Yep, I'm here because Blawgger Extraordinaire Denise Howell spotted this seminar, had a conflict, and wanted to know if blawgs were even 'on the radar' for this seminar. She invited me to attend on her behalf.

I'm sorry to report blawgs haven't made it before the ethics gurus at local law schools, who are sitting at the podium. They asked if anyone in the audience had a website, used email (actually, that question was asked in the reverse - who didn't use email?), or a listserv. No question was asked whether anyone in the audience blawgged. It's safe to say I was the only one.

They did offer some good advice on disclaimers. You'll shortly see some improvements in ours, based on the .pdf version of the PowerPoint Ranger presentation at the seminar.

The message on advertising, apparently, from the bars of the several states is still 'eewwwww.' That's the technical, legal term for lawyer advertising under the Rules of Professional Conduct. I'm glad blawggers haven't earned that moniker yet.
