The American Bar Association (ABA) Commission on Ethics 20/20 has reportedly filed final proposals for updating the model rules to account for technological advances and international legal practice. The proposals will be posted on its Website. According to a news source, the commission’s recommendations, if adopted, would allow lawyers licensed in other countries to work as in-house counsel for their employers from a U.S.-based office, add foreign-licensed lawyers to the Model Rule for Registration of In-House Counsel and update pro hac vice admission rules to give foreign lawyers limited authority to appear in litigation in the United States. The proposals will be considered in February 2013 by the ABA’s House of Delegates during its midyear meeting in Dallas. See Bloomberg BNA The United States Law Week, November 27, 2012.
