Subject to the guidelines contained in the conclusion of this opinion, an attorney may participate in seminars sponsored by either profit or non-profit organizations if the principal purpose of the seminar is to educate the public in a general way on legal issues, and such participation is permissible even though the seminar is neither connected with nor sponsored by the Nebraska State Bar Association. An attorney may not, however, participate in a seminar where its sponsor is a profit-oriented organization, and where one of the purposes of the seminar is to interest the public in purchasing the product or services of the sponsor (for example: Seminars sponsored by life insurance companies, pension and profit-sharing agencies, stock brokers, banks and trust companies, etc.).
