Course Description

The State Bar of California's Rules Revision Commission has written a new set of professional rules. If and when approved by the Supreme Court, they will change the way you practice law. Here is a preview of some of more significant changes in the rules regarding such things as conflicts, performance, and fees. Topics covered include:

- The history and purpose of ethical rules governing lawyers in the United States

Public policy concerns

- Efforts to revise the rules

- An overview of proposed rules

- How changes in the rules will affect the way you practice law

Please note: although this course is eligible for credit in a number of states, the content of this course focuses exclusively on California's current and forthcoming rules of professional conduct.
