Professional conduct rules

The State Bar has reactivated its Commission for the Revision of the Rules of Professional Conduct of the State Bar, which has been directed to conduct a comprehensive review of the rules and to recommend amendments. To begin its study, the commission is seeking written comment about what amendments warrant consideration and study, including suggestions for new rules and rule deletions, and identifying existing rules that do not need to be changed. The rules are online at www.calbar.org.
