Pennsylvania Lawyer Looks at Disciplinary Board

The January/February issue of the Pennsylvania Lawyer magazine, a publication of the Pennsylvania Bar Association, has two articles on the disciplinary system. "Passing Judgment," by Helen Roth Vanston, relates the author's experience and perspectives from her years of service on one of the Hearing Committees of the Disciplinary Board. "Opening the Process" by Don Sarvey examines the aftermath of certain changes in the disciplinary system, including the opening of disciplinary proceedings to the public and the creation of an option of discipline by consent. The articles are available online to members of the Pennsylvania Bar Association at
