New SJC Rule Will Require Professionalism Course

The SJC has issued new Rule 3:16: Practicing with Professionalism Course for New Lawyers. This rule is not effective until September 1, 2013, and applies only to attorneys admitted to the bar on or after that date. The rule will require all new lawyers to "complete a one-day, in-person, mandatory Practicing with Professionalism Course approved by the Supreme Judicial Court or its designee."
