Neil Wertlieb Writes About New Rules of Professional Conduct
On May 10, 2018, the California Supreme Court approved the first comprehensive rewrite of the attorney Rules of Professional Conduct in nearly three decades. When these 69 approved Rules become effective on November 1, 2018, they will replace the 46 Rules of Professional Conduct that currently govern the conduct of all attorneys in California.
Neil Wertlieb authored a three-part series of articles in the Daily Journal that analyzes those new Rules that implement controversial or important changes to the current Rules or impose new obligations in California. Every California attorney should be aware of these changes, as failure to comply with the Rules may result in discipline, including being disbarred from the practice of law.
