Conflict of interest 

The majority of proposed revisions to the State Bar conflict of interest code reflect either job title changes, changes in reporting responsibilities or the deletion of defunct positions and are proposed so that the list of designated employees may more accurately reflect the current organization of the bar.

Fee waiver for military

State Bar Rules and Regulations provide a waiver of membership fees for reservists who were called to active duty in Iraq or Afghanistan. The rule was due to expire Dec. 31, but the board of governors extended it to Dec. 31, 2006, on an interim emergency basis in September. The proposal would extend the waiver through Dec. 31, 2006.
