Thank you, Monica, for focusing more lucid comment on the advertising issues presented by the recent New York State Bar regulations.

I particularly like the focus that the Bar’s energies seem to be inward-looking. As lawyers should be looking at the needs and wants of their cliens/customers, so should the Bar … looking to the needs of its customers, lawyers. While the Bar’s responsibility is to protect the public (from lawers?), the Bar also owes a responsibility to its members. Creating unmanageable requirements is not the way to protect either the public or the members/lawyers.
