Rules Open for Public Comment


Proposed Amendments to Supreme Court Rule 719

The Kansas Supreme Court is accepting public comment on proposed changes to Supreme Court Rule 719 relating to legal interns. Proposed amendments to Rule 719 are extensive and the following are highlighted:

  • Redefined purpose of the legal intern program.
  • Reduction in the necessary hours to apply for a permit.
  • Clarifying the supervising attorney's duties and responsibilities.

With such extensive revision, a redline version of the proposed amendments is not feasible. Instead, a table is provided with the proposed amended rule that outlines what is changed.

The Supreme Court will accept comment until 5 p.m. Wednesday, May 8, 2019. Comment may be made by email to rulenotice@kscourts.org with "Rule 719" in the subject line.
