Committee On Legal Services Procedures
The act directs the committee on legal services (committee) to adopt its own rules of procedure. The act authorizes the committee to approve questions concerning retention of legal counsel by poll of the committee in lieu of a meeting, unless a committee member objects. If the committee approves retention of counsel by poll, the committee must give public notice of the vote to retain counsel, including the name of the legal counsel to be retained, the legal matter for which the legal counsel will provide representation, and the entity or individual that the legal counsel will represent.
