New Rule Proposals In Pennsylvania

Pennsylvania is considering amendments to its bar discipline rules that would, among other things, create a new catagory of administrative suspension for non-disciplinary reasons such as failure to fulfill continuing legal education obligations and non-payment of bar dues. Reinstatement will be less cumbersome for such suspensions. Also, there will be streamlined reinstatement rules in some other matters, modified procedures for criminal convictions and a broadened definition of "discipline" for reciprocal discipline matters.
