Utah lawyers may operate and maintain a website and post advertisements to newsgroups, provided they comply with Rule 7. Opinion 97-10 (October 24, 1997).  Advertising through e-mail messages, which are directed to specific recipients, is generally permissible unless it violates Rule 7.3(b). Attorneys’ participation in “chat groups” is considered to be an “in person” communication and subject to the restrictions of rule 7.3(a).
