Conflict of Interest Code

Proposed revisions to the State Bar's conflict of interest code reflect either job title changes or the deletion of defunct positions and are proposed so the list may more accurately reflect the current organization of the bar. Changes to disclosure categories are recommended to make the categories more reflective of current purchasing practices at the bar. It is suggested that the gift limit be revised and updated to reflect the Fair Political Practices Commissions $10 biennial adjustment to the gift limit.

Fee arbitration

Proposed amendments to the Rules of Procedure for Fee Arbitrations and the Enforcement of Awards fall into several categories: achieving uniformity in grammar and style; deleting duplicative language; streamlining the administrative process; achieving conformity with recent changes in the law; and proposing new rules where needed to clarify and articulate standing procedures that are missing from the current rules.
