Illinois Supreme Court adopts 'proactive management-based regulation'
Yesterday, the Illinois Supreme Court announced rule amendments that make Illinois the first state to adopt so-called “proactive management based regulation” (PMBR), a system designed to prevent ethical missteps by requiring lawyers without malpractice insurance to review their operations. For the text of the changes, see Amended Rule 756(e). The Illinois State Bar Association website has more detailed information about the program here.
