KBA Committees and Sections
The mission of the Professionalism Committee is to advise the KBA Board of Governors on ethical issues and to develop programs that emphasize the importance of maintaining the highest professional standards and practices. During 2012 the Committee has met regularly to evaluate significant proposed rule changes and has offered recommendations to the Board of Governors. The Committee undertook a comprehensive evaluation of the proliferation of do-it-yourself legal forms and produced a white paper outlining cautions for laypersons utilizing such forms. To encourage collegiality within the bar, the Committee organized the KBA Fall Hike to Historic Rugby in honor of Judge Thomas Phillips. Finally, the Committee proposed a nominee to the Board of Governors to receive the Courage in the Face of Adversity Award.
