LAWYERS TO COOPERATE WITH STATE BAR OF US CALIFORNIA
Members of the State Bar of California (SBC), US California’s official bar association, are visiting Mongolia for the second time.
During the visit, a memorandum of cooperation between the Mongolian Lawyers Association (MLA) and SBC was signed by a MLA president D.Batsukh and a SBC member Howard Miller on Monday in presence of Thomas Layton, a SBC member, O.Altangerel, an advisor to Justice Minister of Mongolia.
According to this memorandum, SBC will render consulting services for MLA, and will run trainings including experience sharing and specialist exchanges.
During their visit here, SBC members are planning to hold a workshop in the training and survey center of the State General Prosecutor’s Office to discuss professional responsibility system for lawyers, together with MLA. At the two-day action, Miller and Layton will deliver presentations on the matter.
The State Bar of California is California’s official bar association. It is responsible for managing the admission of lawyers to the practice of law, investigating complaints of professional misconduct, and prescribing appropriate discipline. It is directly responsible to the Supreme Court of California. All attorney admissions and disbarments are issued as recommendations of the State Bar, which are then routinely ratified by the Supreme Court.
