The Kansas Supreme Court is accepting comment on proposed changes to Rules 708, 709A and 712 to allow new attorneys to take their oaths following one procedure, regardless of whether they are admitted under Rules 708, 709, 709A or 712.


The Court will accept comment by email to until 5 p.m. Monday, Aug. 17.


Currently, there are two procedures for new attorneys to take the oath, and the procedure the new attorney follows is dictated by the rule that applies to their admittance. The proposed changes are to establish one procedure for all the rules.


Proposed changes to Rules 708, 709A and 712 are available for review on the Kansas judicial branch website at under "What’s New."
