ABA Model Rules and Ethics Opinions Print Page

ABA Model Rules

The ABA Model Rules are intended to serve as a national standard on how to govern the conduct of attorneys. Each state decides whether to adopt the Model Rules in whole or in part. Some states create their own set of rules, not based on the Model Rules. 

ABA Ethics Opinions

The ABA Standing Committee on Ethics and Professional Responsibility issues opinions on the Model Rules. Attorneys and judges can request opinions. While these Opinions are not enforceable in themselves, they are highly persuasive on those jurisdictions that have adopted the Model Rules.
