Abstract

Is legal information speech within the meaning of the First Amendment? If so, to what extent may government constitutionally regulate the creation and dissemination of legal information, particularly by lawyers? Professor Renee Knake suggests that the answers to these questions hold significant implications for lawyer regulation, the consumer law market, access to justice and First Amendment jurisprudence.
