The constitutionality of restraints on attorneys' speech has been considered by only two federal circuit courts: the Seventh Circuit, in Chicago Council of Lawyers v. Bauer,' and, more recently, the Fourth Circuit, in Hirschkop v. Snead.' Relying on many of the same precedents, the circuits nevertheless developed seemingly contrary standards. This Recent Development compares the analyses of these recent cases and suggests an appropriate standard for the accommodation of the conflicting rights of free speech and a fair trial.
