Description

In the 1970s, a law firm in Phoenix, Arizona, published a simple price list of their legal services--so much for a simple will, some much for a traffic ticket under 4 points, so much for a traffic ticket over 4 points, so much for a DUI, so much for a name change, etc. The Arizona State Bar Association tried to stop the advertising, saying it was unprofessional. Ultimately, the US Supreme Court ruled that a) the law firm COULD advertise; & b) commercial speech was protected under the 1st Amendment to the Constitution. This led to the TV ads for lawyers we see now. Should Commercial speech be protected like political speech? Post your response & responses to other students' postings.
