Fun Friday: YouTube fun, bad lawyer advertising, and good causes!

By  |  Published 

October 1, 2010 – Another Fun Friday is upon us! We Do Web Content is celebrating with a Fun Friday outing this afternoon, but we’re still hard at work this morning bringing you great SEO and Internet marketing content!

As is becoming tradition here, we’ve collected some of the wild and wacky legal stories from around the Internet for your Friday leisure. Check out when lawyer organizations get a little too targeted, a comedy sketch troupe’s take on family legal practices, and opportunities to get involved in Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

 

You’ll understand why the graphic is pink at the end of the blog!

Lawyer Advertising – Jewish American Bar Association

This one hits locally for us – right down the street at the Broward County Courthouse, to be precise! A bus bench ad advertising the importance of hiring a Jewish lawyer has caught the attention of many local attorneys who ended up lobbying for the ad to be taken down.

It wasn’t a discrimination issue, but rather many Jewish lawyers themselves cited fears that such an advertisement would cause the perpetuation of negative stereotypes. The director of the Jewish American Bar Association, located in Boca Raton, says the ad was intended to create a network of lawyers with the same goals and purpose.

Richard Sachs, the president of the B’nai B’rith Justice Unit of Broward County, disagrees with the campaign and fears that it causes people to think that Jewish lawyers regard themselves as better than non-Jewish attorneys. While the JABA claims they do allow non-Jewish membership, their advertisement and registration as a lawyer referral service is under review by the Florida Bar.

YouTube Lawyer Fun – Jaworski Law Sketch

The comedy troupe SadOnVacation gives us a look at the close-knit world of family-run law practices. Take a look at the (fictional) law firm Jaworski 8 (or was it 9? I stopped counting) and their promotional video. We highly recommend that if you’re considering a YouTube video that you please keep the cheesiness down to a minimum!

October Events – National Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Time to get serious now, October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Organizations across the US are stepping up with fundraisers, walks for the cure, and other special events to help raise money for this disease that accounts for 1 in 4 cancers diagnosed in U.S. women.

At We Do Web Content we’ll be promoting breast cancer awareness during the month of October with a pink-tinted blog theme, as well as breast cancer news and facts. We’re also working on putting together a team for a local walk for the cure. Visit your local chapter of the American Cancer Societyor Susan G. Komen Foundation for events and ways to support breast cancer awareness in your area!
