ABA Adopts New Ethics Rules!

A few days ago the ABA adopted amendments to the Model Rules of Professional Conduct. Many of these amendments were a response to issues regarding social media, but not entirely.  Over the next week I’ll be reviewing the rules and blogging about what the changes mean.

You can find all of the new rules here:

IMPORTANT NOTE:  Remember, these rule changes only amend the ABA’s Model Code.  Each individual state must now determine which, if any, amendments they want to include in their own codes. That process will obviously take some time, given the requirement for debate, public comment, etc.
