Why do I have to submit my advertisements to the Bar?

The Supreme Court of Mississippi adopted the advertising rules on October 4, 2004.  The Court requires that certain advertisements, as listed in Rule 7.5, MRPC, be submitted to the Bar.  The Court adopted this rule to enhance its ability to monitor advertising practices for the protection of the public and to assist members of Bar in conforming their advertisements to the ethical requirements of the Rules of Professional Conduct.
