Are SuperLawyers Unethical?

While the general public is probably unaware of the publication, there is an advertising medium out there called "SuperLawyers" a publication which supposedly lists the best lawyers, by state or city.

While it is an advertising gimmick, and impossible for anyone to say that there are super lawyers out there, a New Jersey ethics panel ruled that lawyers are prohibited from advertising their inclusion in the SuperLawyer publications and taking part in the selection process.

That has generated a controversy regarding attorney advertising, and the concept of "super lawyers." Inside Opinions has the rundown of the controversy.
