Abstract
Alabama lawyers are bound by strict rules of ethics in all of their professional dealings. The Alabama Rules of Professional Conduct help define a lawyer's obligations to clients, to the judicial system, to the public, and to the profession.
While the Supreme Court of Alabama retains ultimate authority to regulate the legal profession, the Alabama State Bar’s Office of the General Counsel serves as the Court's arm to investigate and prosecute claims that a lawyer has violated the Rules of Professional Conduct.
