The Hearing Board

The Hearing Board consists of lawyers and nonlawyers appointed by the Commission in a ratio of two lawyers to one nonlawyer. The Commission also appoints one lawyer member of the Board to serve as Chair of the entire Board. Appointments are for annual terms extending to the last day of February and until a successor is appointed. The Board sits in panels of three, with one of the lawyer members designated as Panel Chair. The panels preside over the hearing of disciplinary, disability, and reinstatement cases.
