The State Bar is seeking public comment on a proposal to revise the Legal Specialization rules to reduce the size of the California Board of Legal Specialization (CBLS) from 15 to seven members, remove reference to advisory commissions, update the rules to reflect that the meetings must conform to the Bagley-Keene Open Meeting Act, and transfer certain responsibilities to State Bar staff.

The following revisions are proposed:
