Legal Ethics - California's Rules of Professional Conduct

Gain valuable insights into how everyday ethical situations in California can impact how you practice law.

In November 2018, sweeping changes to the Rules of Professional Conduct governing attorneys in California went into effect. All California attorneys are now required to be in compliance with the new rules. The new Rules of Professional Conduct include some substantial changes, including many new rules that may require changes in current practices. This information will familiarize attorneys with some of the key new rules, and explain how those rules differ from the previous rules.
