Lynk featured in ‘ABA Journal’
published an article quoting ASU Professor
Myles V. Lynk
titled, “A New Look: ABA Plans First Comprehensive Review of Disciplinary Enforcement Rules in 20 Years.”
Lynk is currently chair of the ABA Standing Committee on Professional Discipline, which will be in charge of reviewing the rules and professional conduct systems for lawyers.
The rules haven’t been reviewed in their entirety since the early 1990s, shortly after their adoption by the House of Delegates in 1989, so they’re due for a thorough checkup, Lynk said.
The committee’s timetable for the project is remaining open-ended, Lynk said.
“I would love it if we could bring our recommendations before the House of Delegates sometime in 2014, but we don’t know the depth and extent of comments we’ll receive, " Lynk said. "We are not entering this review with any assumptions about what rules need revision.”
Lynk says the committee will rely heavily on input from individuals and groups working in the ethics and discipline fields.
