The bar is now generally aware that a revised set of Rules of Professional Conduct has been proposed to, and is being considered by, the American Bar Association. These proposed Model Rules, if endorsed by the ABA, will be presented for adoption in the several states. If adopted in a state, the Model Rules would replace the present Code of Professional Responsibility.
