According to The National Law Journal, when the American Bar Association meets in Chicago next week, its House of Delegates will consider resolutions on a wide range of topics related to everything from attorney misconduct to intellectual property litigation to pro bono conflicts of interest.

The house, which includes 555 members, will consider 36 bylaw and constitutional amendments plus other recommendations proposed by its various law sections and committees. The proposals will be considered during the last two days of the annual meeting, which runs July 20 to Aug. 4. The 130-year-old ABA has about 400,000 members, most of whom are lawyers, and is led by the house.

In one proposal from the Criminal Justice Section, the house will vote on urging courts to distinguish between "attorney misconduct" and "attorney error." The recommendation encourages the courts "to refrain from declaring in any order, opinion, or other public statement that an attorney engaged in misconduct unless the courts finds [sic] that the attorney's act or omission was purposeful, knowing or intentional or otherwise violated an applicable disciplinary rule or law."
