According to the November 10, 2014 edition of Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly, oral argument on proposed changes to the Rules of Professional Conduct will be heard by the Supreme Judicial Court on December 18th, 2014 at 10 AM, as there are significant differences with the current Massachusetts Rules of Professional Conduct on topics such as post-trial contact with jurors and discipline of law firms for misconduct.

The Supreme Judicial Court’s webpage on the proposed changes is a wealth of information including Advisory Committee’s Proposed Revisions, Supplemental Report of the Advisory Committee, red-lined versions to compare the proposed revisions with an earlier version of the proposed changes, with the current Massachusetts  Rules of Professional Conduct and with the American Bar Association’s Model Rules of Professional Conduct, as well as comments submitted by organizations and public officials.
