This Legislative History traces the Model Rules of Professional Conduct (Model Rules) from the appointment of the ABA Commission on Evaluation of Professional Standards ("Kutak Commission") in 1977 through the year 2005. It includes the first presentation of the Model Rules format to the American Bar Association House of Delegates ("House") at the January 1982 ABA Midyear Meeting by the Kutak Commission, the adoption of the Model Rules at the August 1983 ABA Annual Meeting, and the many amendments to the Model Rules that have been adopted or proposed through August 2005. The material in the Legislative History is drawn from many sources, including Reports with Recommendations presented to the House, transcripts of House debates, and agenda books of meetings of the House Committees on Drafting and on Rules and Calendar. The Legislative History is intended to lead researchers to a better understanding of the Model Rules as they exist on January 1, 2006 and to aid all those who interpret or apply the Model Rules: courts, disciplinary agencies, regulatory bodies and, not least, practicing lawyers.
