Benjamin Schimelman appointed to the Connecticut Bar Association’s Standing Committee on Professional Ethics
Benjamin Schimelman was recently appointed to the Connecticut Bar Association’s Standing Committee on Professional Ethics. The purpose of the Standing Committee on Professional Ethics is to provide members of the bar with opinions on matters of professional ethics. Written requests for opinions are referred to a committee member for preparation of a draft opinion, which is then debated and considered for adoption or rejection at the monthly meeting of the committee in New Haven. Some opinions are referred to subcommittees for research, reconsideration, and revision. All of the committee members are therefore given an opportunity to participate in the activities of the committee. The committee issues Formal and Informal Opinions. The Formal Opinions are published in the Connecticut Bar Journal and the ABA/BNA Lawyers Manual on Professional Conduct. Digests are published in the ABA/BNA Manual. New opinions are published in Connecticut Lawyer magazine.
