Rule 208A

Mandatory Disclosure of Professional Liability Insurance

Section Attorney Discipline
(a)   Each attorney admitted to the active practice of law must certify as part of annual registration under Rule 208:

(1)   whether the attorney is engaged in the private practice of law;

(2)   if engaged in the private practice of law, whether the attorney is currently covered by professional liability insurance; and

(3)   whether the attorney is exempt from the provisions of this rule because the attorney is engaged in the practice of law as a full-time government attorney or in-house counsel and does not represent clients outside that capacity.

(b)   Each attorney admitted to the active practice of law in this jurisdiction who reports being covered by professional liability insurance must notify the Office of Judicial Administration in writing within 30 days if the insurance policy providing coverage lapses, is no longer in effect, or terminates for any reason.

(c)   The information submitted in accordance with this rule will be made available to the public in a manner designated by the Supreme Court.

(d)   Any attorney admitted to the active practice of law who fails to comply with this rule may be suspended from the practice of law until such time as the attorney complies. Supplying false information in response to this rule will subject the attorney to appropriate disciplinary action.
