Massachusetts Bar Discipline

The purpose of this treatise, Massachusetts Bar Discipline: History, Practice, and Procedure, is to make the law and procedure related to bar discipline more accessible and understandable to the bench, the bar, and the public.  While there have been several publications describing the Massachusetts bar discipline process, no work has described it in great detail while also analyzing the sanctions it imposes, and more generally, the Massachusetts Rules of Profession­al Conduct.  Here, important cases are reviewed, rules are explained, and practical pointers abound.  In this way, this treatise seeks to fill a perceived gap in access to important informa­tion—both the substantive and procedural law of bar discipline and the realities of practice before the Board of Bar Overseers—and to make that practice more transparent to partici­pants and observers.
