On July 7, 2010, the Supreme Court of Texas asked the State Bar of Texas Board of Directors to consider revised proposed amendments to the Texas Disciplinary Rules of Professional Conduct and provide recommendations or comments to the Court by Oct. 6, 2010.

State Bar of Texas members will likely vote on the proposed amendments in November or December 2010.

The State Bar will soon hold public education hearings around the state on the proposed amendments. Click here for the hearing schedule [PDF]
