Supreme Court seeks comments on proposed amendments to the Vermont Rules of Professional Conduct

Earlier this week, the Supreme Court published for comment proposed amendments to the Vermont Rules of Professional Conduct. The full text of the proposals is here.  The summary is on this page.

I don’t want to waste my time or yours by drafting a post that restates the proposals and summary.  So, I won’t.  For those who prefer content delivered in a different format, here’s a video in which I walk through the proposed amendments.  Comments should be emailed to me.  The comment period closes on July 11, 2022.

And – don’t forget! As I blogged here, the Court is also considering a proposal to amend the licensing statement to require lawyers on active status to disclose whether they carry professional liability insurance.  The proposal, which exempts government lawyers and in-house counsel, is here.  Scroll down under the heading “Proposed Order Amending A.O. 41 § 4 and adding § 18.”.  Comments should be emailed to me.  The period to comment on this proposed rule closes on June 20, 2022.
