The State Bar of California has gone through some significant changes in the past year. It shed the Sections and Committees, which formed the backbone of services for many practitioners by offering information and programs in specified practice areas. It is now solely a regulatory agency with oversight on attorney admissions and discipline. With that in mind, it is in the interest of every California licensed attorney and those desiring to practice law in California, including out-of-state lawyers residing in California representing companies doing business in California, to know the new Rules of Professional Conduct which became effective November 1, 2018. We will cover selected Rules in an interactive environment (that means YOU participate!) which have changed the landscape for lawyers. For example, do you know the new rule regarding advanced fees? We will discuss this dramatic change, as well as the most significant change of all, the new numbering system for the Rules. Come join us for an informative presentation, great food, camaraderie and exceptional networking opportunities.
