The amendments, effective August 1, 2010, make participation in the IOLTA program mandatory for D.C. 酒吧 members who receive IOLTA–eligible funds, except when a lawyer is otherwise compliant with the contrary mandates of a tribunal, or when the lawyer is participating in and compliant with trust accounting rules and the IOLTA program of the jurisdiction where the lawyer is licensed and principally practices.

The revisions amend Rule 1.15 . D.C. 规则 of Professional Conduct and delete Rule 1.19 and Appendix B to the rules. Some provisions of former Rule 1.19 and Appendix B were moved to Rule 1.15 and to a new Section 20 to Rule XI of the D.C. Court of Appeals 规则 Governing the District of Columbia 酒吧.

The revised 规则 are intended to boost funds distributed by the D.C. 酒吧 Foundation to local legal service providers by increasing revenue from D.C. IOLTA and interest paid by banks on funds held in these accounts. The revisions also provide greater clarity to the trust account ethics 规则.

For more information on the revised 规则, contact legal ethics counsel Hope C. 托德,202-737-4700,分机. 3231, or Saul Singer at 202-737-4700, ext. 3232,或电邮至 (电子邮件保护).
