One could make a similar argument for scientists, however scientists are not licensed by the government, so the relevant ethical code for scientists is promulgated only by nonprofit professional societies, not an agency of the government. Recognizing that the public value of informed commentary is great and the likelihood of prejudice to a proceeding by the commentary of a lawyer who is not involved in the proceeding is small, the Rule applies only to lawyers who are, or who have been involved in the investigation or litigation of a case, and their associates.
