ABA Task Force on Gatekeeper Regulation and the Profession
Notice on the ABA Task Force on Gatekeeper Regulation and the Profession, 2013
The PBA Real Property, Probate and Trust Law Section advises that PBA members should be aware of the work of the ABA Task Force on Gatekeeper Regulation and the Profession, which is tasked with "examin[ing] U.S. government and multilateral efforts to combat international money laundering and the implications of these efforts for lawyers and the profession." According to task force materials, lawyers should be concerned about this process "because Congress is considering legislation that would … undermine the traditional role of state courts in regulating lawyers … and interfere with the confidential attorney-client relationship." Go to the task force home page on the ABA website for more information, including a list of FAQ.
