Appellate review body in the lawyer discipline system
The Disciplinary Board reviews lawyer discipline decisions.
We have four review committees. Each committee has two lawyer members and one non-lawyer member. One committee meets each month. They review disciplinary counsel requests for public hearing, admonitions and interim suspensions. They also review disciplinary counsel dismissals and dismissal with advisory letter. These meetings are not open to the public. See more information about review committees, orders and meeting dates.
