Highlights of the November 2012 House of Delegates Meeting:

• The House subscribed to Bylaws amendments to add an additional delegate from the Judicial Section to the House of Delegates and to reclassify membership categories.

• The House approved the report and recommendations of the Task Force on Nonlawyer Ownership reaffirming the Association’s opposition at this time to any form of nonlawyer ownership of law firms in the absence of a sufficient demonstration that change is in the best interest of clients and society, and does not undermine or dilute the integrity of the legal profession.

• The House approved the report and recommendations of the Special Committee on Veterans with respect to support for veterans’ treatment courts, improved legal training for lawyers seeking to assist veterans and improved access to legal services.
