Prof. Andrew Perlman, one of the members of the ABA Commission on Ethics 20/20, has posted an announcement in the Legal Ethics Forum stating that the Commission has released nearly final drafts of the proposals that the ABA House of Delegates is expected to consider at its August 2012 meeting. The drafts cover issues relating to technology and confidentiality, technology and client development, outsourcing, the establishment of an office in another jurisdiction while admission in that jurisdiction is pending, admission by motion, and the disclosure of confidential information to detect conflicts of interest. A cover memo describing the newest drafts and how they differ from prior drafts is here. The deadline for comments on these new draft proposals is April 2, 2012. The Commission plans to finalize these proposals shortly thereafter, so if you would like to comment, please do so before the deadline by sending an email to the Commission's Senior Research Paralegal, Natalia Vera, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
