At the symposium, Mr. Carr will discuss new challenges facing the rule-making process and practice of law today, drawing appropriate comparisons to and lessons from the past.

“We are at an important turning point as the State Bar of California determines it’s future,” noted Mr. Carr.  “With the possibility of the Bar potentially splitting up its licensure and regulatory functions, this Symposium comes at a critical time. I am honored to be a presenter, and encourage everyone who is passionate about the future of California’s legal profession to join us in San Francisco.”

At the first Ethics Symposium in 1995, a distinguished panel addressed the question of “Who’s Running the Profession? The Future of Rules-Making and the Disciplinary Process.” Among other things, the 1995 panel considered problems inherent in the rule-making process; complications resulting from the Legislature’s involvement in establishing ethical standards for the legal profession; and what form the regulation of the legal profession should and would take in the immediate future. Fast forward two decades later, and many of the same issues have re-emerged to confront the legal profession and change the practice of law. Mr. Carr’s panel will speak on such re-emerging issues in order to establish a better rules-making and disciplinary process.
