Committees: Legal Ethics
The Legal Ethics Committee seeks to raise the Bar’s ethical standards, promote the Bar’s ethical awareness, and clarify the Bar’s ethical responsibilities, all in accordance with the rules of the Supreme Court of Indiana.

The Committee issues formal written opinions from time to time, either in response to specific inquiries from Indiana State Bar Association members, or as a result of its determination that an opinion on the particular topic would be useful. Those formal opinions shall be upon questions of first impression in Indiana and other matters warranting general circulation in the judgment of the Committee. The Committee also provides informal ethical guidance via a telephone panel staffed by its own volunteers.  Finally, the Committee works with the Association and its constituent sections and committees to produce educational programming on professional responsibility issues.
