New Rules of Professional Conduct Course
The first e-learning course, available to all licensees, is a 2-hour overview of changes to the California Rules of Professional Conduct effective November 1, 2018. You will earn 2 hours of participatory MCLE credit in legal ethics.
This course highlights rules with new duties as well as rules with substantive changes in duties from the former rules. It provides resources for cross-referencing the former rules with the new rule counterparts that have a new numbering system similar to the ABA Model Rules.
Ensuring high ethical standards and compliance with the Rules of Professional Conduct is among the State Bar’s highest public protection priorities, so we are offering this course to all licensees without charge until July 1, 2020.
