The American bar Association Model Rules of Professional Conduct serve as models for the ethics rules of most jurisdictions. Given that they have been adopted in whole or in part in nearly every jurisdiction, why is Model Rule 8.4(g) so controversial and why have so few states enacted it?

Join Bernard S. Burk, Veronica J. Finkelstein, and Nancy B. Rapoport to learn what this rule is designed to address, how it has been implemented in various jurisdictions, the legal challenges to the rule, and why some type of diversity, equity, and inclusion requirement might be appropriate for the legal profession.
