PROFESSIONALISM COMMITTEE

 

The Santa Clara County Bar Association Professionalism Committee actively reviews and comments, when appropriate, on proposed State Bar ethics opinions promulgated by the State Bar Committee on Profession Rules & Conduct (COPRAC).

COPRAC relies on the SCCBA comments and has often revised proposed ethics opinions based on those comments.  This is a critical function for our local legal community and is a significant benefit to local practitioners to have a voice in the substance of the State Bar ethics opinions.  This participation is made possible through member dues.  

 

Here you will be able to access the following tools for ethics and professionalism:

  • a list of proposed State Bar ethics opinions circulating for public comment and being reviewed by the Professionalism Committee; 
  • the most recent published State Bar ethics opinions; links to all State Bar ethics opinions; and 
  • links to significant ABA ethics and professionalism resources.
