The Arkansas Supreme Court has adopted new procedures for the operation of the program that provides help to addicted lawyers. The new procedures "more correctly reflect the day-to-day activities, responsibilities and other programs attendant to the effective operation of the program." The program also has been renamed to reflect that its services are available to judges as well as members of the bar.
The District of Columbia bar magazine, The Washington Lawyer, has recently published an article about the lawyer assistance program in that jurisdiction. The D.C. program also provides counseling to law student who intend to apply for admission to the D.C. bar. (Mike Frisch)
