Name: Andrew Kaufman
Title (HLS): Tenured Professor
My service on the Committee on Professional Ethics of the Massachusetts Bar Association is pro bono. The Committee gives written advice to Massachusetts lawyers on a wide variety of professional responsibility issues. By its rules, those lawyers are treated as clients of the committee and the identity of those "clients" and the issues discussed are confidential. 1978-Present
I serve pro bono as a member of the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court's Advisory Committee on the Rules of Professional Conduct. This committee makes recommendations to the SJC concerning the Mass. law governing the professional conduct of state lawyers -- including many issues about which I teach. The discussions of the committee are confidential but some results of those discussions become public when the recommendations of the committee are published by order of the SJC. 1995-Present
