Rules Open for Public Comment


Amended Supreme Court Rule 801

The Kansas Supreme Court is accepting public comment on proposed amendments to Supreme Court Rule 801 to make current employees of the Continuing Legal Education Commission employees of the Office of Judicial Administration, effective July 1, 2019.

Comments may be made by email to publiccomments@kscourts.org until noon Friday, June 28, 2019. The subject line must read "Rule 801."

The proposed amendments are part of an administrative restructuring within the Kansas judicial branch to achieve operational and organizational efficiencies. The change will not affect the excellent level of service members of the bar have come to expect from the Commission and its staff.

The Supreme Court thanks the staff of the CLE Commission and all current past Commission members for their effort and dedication to enable and support continuous improvement in the performance of Kansas lawyers.

Amended Rule 801

Proposed Supreme Court Rule 712B and Amended Supreme Court Rules 201, 208, and 712

The Kansas Supreme Court is accepting public comment on proposed Supreme Court Rule 712B, which will establish a process by which nonprofit legal service providers or law school clinics can be approved to use retired, inactive, or single-employer attorneys to provide pro bono services. The rule also identifies the requirements and creates the process for attorneys who wish to provide these services.

Also proposed are amendments to Supreme Court Rules 201, 208, and 712 to reference Rule 712B.

Forms to implement Rule 712B are also open for comment. They are not part of the rule, so they are posted separately.

Comments may be made by email to publiccomments@kscourts.org until 5 p.m. Wednesday, June 19, 2019. The subject line must read "Rule 712B."
