Florida Commission on Access to Civil Justice Notification of Amendments to the Rules Regulating the Florida Bar

Friday, April 27, 2018 4:30 AM | Nakia Ruffin (Administrator)


The Florida Commission on Access to Civil Justice sent this letter regarding recent changes to the Rules Regulating the Florida Bar. The amendments are intended to broaden the access to civil justice by expanding the pool of individuals eligible to serve as pro bono emeritus lawyers under the auspices of Court-approved, non-profit legal aid organizations.
 
The changes took effect on Feb. 1 and at the request of Commission Chair Chief Justice Jorge Labarga, we are providing a copy of the amendments and other material and asking that you please share this important information. Thank you.
