With the Annual Meeting fast approaching we wanted to remind you of the opportunity to sign up for the August 6 or August 31, 2022 public roundtables relating to the Second Discussion Draft of possible amendments to the ABA Model Rules of Professional Conduct (Model Rules). The Second Discussion Draft addresses possible amendments to ABA Model Rule 1.2 relating to lawyers’ ethical obligations to conduct client due diligence to avoid engaging, or assisting a client, in conduct that the lawyer knows is criminal or fraudulent. Your comments will assist the Committees in determining whether and how to proceed. You may view the Second Discussion Draft and eventually all comments received.
Please contact Center for Professional Responsibility Senior Paralegal Natalia Vera by Thursday, August 4, 2022, to register for the August 6 roundtable.
To register for the August 31 roundtable, please contact Ms. Vera by Thursday, August 25, 2022. She will send a Zoom link to registrants no later than Monday, August 29, 2022, with the list of those registered to testify and the times for their testimony.
Thank you for your consideration of this Discussion Draft. The Committees look forward to your comments.
