The article examines the issue of the limits of freedom of expression of representatives of the professional legal community in public spaces on the example of the case “Sokolov case”. The goal is to explore the “spontaneous” regulation of ethical issues of legal practice in modern interactive realities. The task is a study of the specific disciplinary proceedings of one of the regional professional legal community. The authors demonstrate the fact that in a particular case the “eternal questions of the Bar” are doctrinally investigated: the scope of the council's disciplinary authority, the distance between the bar and the state, commercial and charitable in the bar. Conclusions: in the “Sokolov case” the council defended the right to freedom of speech of lawyers in the network, delineating the scope of this right - the lawyer is forbidden to distribute statements containing foul language. At the same time, this case opened Pandora’s box, which shattered the whole organization of the professional legal community in Russia.
