The OBA Legal Ethics Advisory Panel, with the OBA Ethics Counsel, serves in an advisory capacity for OBA members seeking written opinions concerning compliance with the Oklahoma Rules of Professional Conduct. The committee makes every attempt to conduct thorough research in preparing an advisory opinion; however, members should conduct their own research regarding specific ethical issues to determine whether an opinion has superseded by caselaw or authority.
Legal ethics opinions are intended as a guide to responsible professional behavior. Advisory opinions shall only have such force and effect as they are given by the Oklahoma Supreme Court and shall not be construed as anything but advisory in nature. The OBA disclaims any liability in connection with the issuance of any of its opinions. Panel rules describe its duties, membership, procedure and opinion appeal process.
