The Justices of the Supreme Judicial Court have adopted
substantial revisions to the Rules of Professional Conduct (Mass.
R. Prof. C.) contained in SJC Rule 3.07, which went into effect on
July 1. The revisions were based on recommendations of the Court's
Standing Advisory Committee on the Rules of Professional Conduct
and reflect changes to the American Bar Association's Model Rules
of Professional Conduct, in addition to comments on the committee's
proposals submitted by members of the bar and others and oral
arguments on certain provisions.
