Proposed Public Comment


Bar board elections

Proposed revisions to the State Bar Rules would clarify procedures with regard to address requirements to establish eligibility to run or vote in board of governors elections. The change would make an attorney’s official State Bar address the default for determining eligibility for candidacy and voting.
