712B - Pro Bono or Low-Cost Legal Services Provided by Retired, Inactive, or Single-Employer Attorneys

The Kansas Supreme Court is accepting public comment on proposed amendments to Supreme Court Rule 712B. The rule establishes a process by which nonprofit legal service providers and 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 want to provide these services. The proposed amendments add another category of entities that may seek approval under this rule and narrow the type of legal services that may be provided.

Proposed changes are shown using strikethrough for deletion and underlining for new language. 

Comment may be made by email to publiccomments@kscourts.org until 5 p.m. Sunday, August 9, 2020. The subject line must read "Rule 712B."

Comments may be made by email to ­publiccomments@kscourts.org until 5 p.m. Monday, August 17, 2020. The subject line must read "Rule 188."

301 367 - Rules relating to court reporters

The Kansas Supreme Court accepted public comment on proposed amendments to Supreme Court Rules between 301 and 367.

The amendments update rule language and transfer from the Clerk of the Appellate Courts Office to the Office of Judicial Administration:

• responsibility for administering the court reporter program; and
• duties related to the Board of Examiners of Court Reporters.

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 court reporters know to expect.
