State Legal Ethics

The official version of the New York Rules of Professional Conduct is found as 22 NYCRR 1200 (more specifically in the New York Codes, Rules & Regulations Title 22 [Judiciary], Subtitle B Courts, Chapter IV Supreme Court, Subchapter E All Departments, Part 1200 Rules of Professional Conduct; § 1200.0 Rules of Professional Conduct). In 2009, the Rules of Professional Conduct replaced the previous Rules of Professional Responsibility. For a comparison of the two see:  Comparing New NY Rules of Professional Conduct to Existing NY Code of Professional Responsibility (Part I) by Roy Simon (Feb, 2009) and Comparing New NY Rules of Professional Conduct to Existing NY Code of Professional Responsibility (Part II) by Roy Simon (March 2009) both appearing on the New York Legal Ethics Reporter.
