Darrell G. Mottley chairs the D.C. Bar Global Legal Practice Task Force, which is now seeking public comment on its report and recommendation to amend D.C. Court of Appeals Rule 46 — Admission to the Bar. Comments are due by close of business on Sept. 5, 2017.
The Global Legal Practice Task Force proposes amendments to Rule 46 that would: (1) reduce the number of credit hours to satisfy the additional education requirement from 26 hours to 24 hours; (2) change the subject matter requirement to 12 credit hours from a list of specific courses described in Rule 46 and 12 credit hours in elective courses; and (3) allow any amount of the additional education requirement to be completed by distance education that the law school would certify as complying with ABA distance education standards.
