Hal Lieberman on How to Improve Efficiency in the Attorney Disciplinary Process

  • January 21, 2016

Hal Lieberman published a second article in the New York Law Journal concerning the Commission on Statewide Attorney Discipline’s September 2015 Report. His previous article focused on the recommendations that would improve uniformity and fairness. This article considers the recommendations aimed at fostering efficiency within the disciplinary process.

Hal supports the Commission’s suggested two-prong approach: (i) developing a process for disposing of meritless complaints, and (ii) targeting more resources at prosecuting serious cases that warrant public discipline.
