Iowa Professional Conduct Rules Changing

rules of professional conductLast week, the Iowa Supreme Court requested for public comment on its proposed set of changes to the Iowa Rules of Professional Conduct to ensure they fall in line with the ABA Model Rules of Professional Conduct.

In 2005, Iowa adopted its first set of Rules of Professional Conduct. This will be the first set of changes made since the adoption.

The proposed amendments will be made to Chapter 32 of the Iowa Court rules. The goal of the Court when setting these new statutes was to promote an increased sense of familiarity and uniformity for Iowa attorneys when practicing in their home state or within other jurisdictions (all except for California) that abide by the American Bar Association’s Model Rules of Professional Conduct.

If you are interested in submitting a comment regarding a proposed amendment or rule, please email the suggestion to rules.comments@iowacourts.gov with the subject line “Rules of Professional Conduct” as an attachment in a Microsoft word document. Those interested also have the option to mail or hand deliver a copy of your comments to the following address by October 6, 2015 at 4:30 PM:

Clerk of the Supreme Court
Judicial Branch Building
1111 East Court Avenue
Des Moines, IA 50319
