ABA Considers Recommendations on Judicial Conduct, Gun Control, & "Apology Legislation" at Mid-Year Meeting
July 15, 2008
The American Bar Association’s House of Delegates will consider a number of resolutions at its annual meeting in Miami on February 12. If adopted, these resolutions become official policy of the Association. The ABA, maintaining that it serves as the national representative of the legal profession, may then engage in lobbying or advocacy of these policies on behalf of its members. At this meeting, recommendations scheduled to be debated include proposals concerning “apology legislation,” diversity, domestic violence, and gun control. What follows is a review of some of the resolutions that will be considered in Miami.
