CPIL's Julie Fellmeth Quoted in The Recorder Article on new California Legal Services Regulatory Board

San Francisco (April 8, 2016) – University of San Diego (USD) School of Law’s Center for Public Interest Law (CPIL) Administrative Director Julie D'Angelo Fellmeth was quoted in The Recorder article on the proposal of a 13-member California Legal Services Regulatory Board for the California State Bar. 

The article states that, for years, the California State Bar has discussed the idea of decoupling the organization’s regulatory work from its advocacy activities. The new board, proposed by two members of the state bar’s board of trustees, would focus on regulatory work such as lawyer admissions and discipline, while a separate, nonprofit California State Bar Association would advocate for the profession on behalf of voluntary members.

"I think that [a split] is inevitable," said Fellmeth, a long-time advocate of bar de-unification. "The auditor's report and other scandals and problems have heightened the Legislature's awareness of how differently the bar operates than other professional regulatory agencies," Visit therecorder.com to read the full article.
