Our panelists will address the proposed change to Illinois Rule of Professional Responsibility 8.4, which would explicitly prohibit discrimination or harassment by a lawyer in conduct related to the practice of law. The panel will discuss the protections provided by the proposed rule change and its impact on the profession, as well as the concerns raised in opposition to the proposed change, including that the change constitutes an unconstitutional restriction on free speech and allows bar regulators to overreach.
