Neil Wertlieb Writes About Proposed Rules of Professional Conduct

Earlier this year, the California State Bar proposed 70 new and amended Rules of Professional Conduct to replace the 46 rules that currently govern the conduct of attorneys in California. Several of the proposed rules contemplate controversial or important changes to the current rules or impose new obligations in California. Neil Wertlieb’s article, entitled “Best Behavior: Proposed Conduct Rules,” which was published in November in the Los Angeles Lawyer, a publication of the Los Angeles County Bar Association, summarizes these proposed changes.
