The Board of Trustees established the Ad Hoc Commission on the Discipline System to assess the initiatives, policies, and procedures implemented to improve the efficiency, effectiveness, and fairness of the attorney discipline system and to identify any additional improvements needed. The 26-member commission began its work in April 2021 and included members with a broad array of backgrounds and expertise in the legal profession and regulatory agencies. The commission conducted a comprehensive review of the initiatives, policies, and procedures the Office of Chief Trial Counsel (OCTC) developed and implemented over the last several years.
At its meetings on June 1, 2022, and August 24, 2022, the commission adopted the following nine recommendations listed below by topic area.
There is no fiscal impact for the requested action. State Bar staff will generate a projected fiscal impact of the final recommendations submitted by the commission to the Board subsequent to the public comment period.
