The Florida Bar

June 22, 1964

There is nothing improper in a law firm securing copies of pamphlets published by The Florida Bar for a savings association and nothing improper in the displaying and distributing of such pamphlets by the association.

Canons: 27, 35

Chairman Smith stated the opinion of the committee:

A member of The Florida Bar states that a federal savings and loan association has asked his firm to procure for display and distribution in its building copies of The Florida Bar pamphlet entitled “Have You Made A Will?”. The association wishes to make the pamphlet available to members of the public who ask about problems relating to the preparation of wills.

This Committee is unanimously of the opinion that there would be nothing improper in the firm securing the pamphlets as planned and nothing improper in the savings and loan association displaying and distributing the pamphlets. The Committee, in fact, commends the practice to members of the Bar.
