Long time readers of this blog know that I have been following the process of revision of the rules in California. See here and here, for example. Here is the latest: The State Bar of California has authorized public comment on 68 proposed new and amended Rules of Professional Conduct developed by the State Bar’s Commission for the Revision of the Rules of Professional Conduct (“Commission”). The public comment period is 90-days with a deadline of September 27, 2016.
You can access the public comment notice and proposed rule drafts posted at the Bar’s website here.
The Board also authorized a public hearing on the proposed rules. The public hearing is scheduled for July 26, 2016. It will be held at the Los Angeles office of the State Bar with a remote audio/video connection to the San Francisco office. Testimony may be given at either location.
