Sustainable practice

Would create a Lawyers Eco-Pledge and Law Office Sustainability Policies. Members, firms or law departments who have adopted and implemented a State Bar Law Office Sustainability Policy would be able to claim bar recognition through the licensing of a “tag line” and logo to be used in advertising and promotional materials, and perhaps be eligible for other forms of bar recognition.
