I recently distributed an article about the report of the New Jersey Supreme Court’s Ad Hoc Committee on Continuing Legal Education as it relates to in-house counsel and inactive attorneys. Below are links to some of the materials reference in the notice.

NJ Court Rule 1:27-2 – Provides that in-house counsel licensed in another state but employed in New Jersey may obtain a limited license (subject to certain restrictions) to practice law in New Jersey solely for his/her employer.

NJ Court Rule 1:28-2(b) – Uses the term “inactive” for the purpuse of excusing inactive attorneys from New Jersey Client Protection Fund payments. Does not define “inactive.”

Official Notice of the Ad Hoc Committee’s Report dated November 10, 2008, but not published until December 1, 2008.

Full text of the Ad Hoc Committee Report.

Please email me if you would like a copy of the full text of my article.
