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.
