This Committee issues written opinions on the proper interpretation of the Rules of Professional Conduct, which are indexed and available on MSBA’s website. The Committee discusses draft opinions, proposed Rule changes, and other matters relating to attorney ethics. The Committee provides advice on the interpretation and application of the Rules through the operation of a telephone “hotline” service, announcing the volunteer names each month in the Bar Bulletin and on the website.

Now Announcing: MSBA Connect

Online Discussion Platform Upgrade

MSBA is now offering your committee access to MSBA Connect, our new online discussion community exclusively for members. This new tool will replace the current Email Discussion Lists (more commonly referred to as the MSBA’s ListServs) as we modernize our online presence. MSBA Connect will provide members with a more functional and reliable means of connecting with each other well into the future.

Make sure you’re logged in with the email you use for your MSBA account and click the button below. You’ll find detailed FAQs and “How-To” videos to help you get started.
