In conjunction with the ABA Annual Meeting, on Friday, July 31, 2015, the Standing Committee on Ethics and Professional Responsibility held a roundtable discussion on a working discussion draft of revisions to ABA Model Rule of Professional Conduct 8.4. Under consideration was relocating the prohibition against knowingly discriminating or harassing another person in conduct relating to the practice of law or in the practice of law from current Comment  into the black letter of the Rule as new paragraph (g). Additional revisions were also made to the Rule. Interested persons were encouraged to come to the roundtable to discuss the draft and offer their recommendations and suggestions.
