Conduct Guidelines for Ohio Prosecutors and Defense Attorneys Issued

   The Ohio Supreme Court’s news service this morning passed on an announcement of the Ohio Supreme Court’s Commission on Professionalism releasing a new best practices publication to promote professionalism among Ohio’s lawyers. The Professionalism Dos andDon’ts: Conduct of Prosecutors and Defense Attorneys lists a number of guidelines for lawyers on both sides of a criminal matter, and “serves as a reminder that prosecutors and defense attorneys are officers of the court and should work diligently and respectfully as advocates,” in the words of Commission on Professionalism Secretary Lori Keating.
