At The Podium

Insights Into the Bar Disciplinary and Reinstatement Process

Oklahoma Corporation Commission CLE Seminar

During this one-hour CLE presentation, McAfee & Taft trial lawyer Gerald Hilsher provides background and insights on the jurisdictional and procedural roles of the Supreme Court, the Oklahoma Bar Association’s Professional Responsibility Commission (PRC), the OBA’s General Counsel’s Office, and the Professional Responsibility Tribunal (PRT) in assessing the need for discipline, the appropriate discipline to be applied, and in approving reinstatement of lawyers who have resigned under threat of discipline or by reason of a move to another jurisdiction. Such rules also identify issues concerning burden of proof, receipt of evidence, the formal reporting by the PRT to the Supreme Court, and the Supreme Court’s non-delegable duty to exercise its exclusive original jurisdiction and ultimate responsibility for imposition of professional discipline and approval of reinstatement of members to the roll of Oklahoma attorneys.
