Some have expressed concern that addressing allegations of misconduct under Rule 8.4(g) will be an administrative burden, particularly in states with smaller disciplinary boards/ethics panels. Of course, the potential for an increased administrative burden does not constitute sufficient justification for failing to address discrimination and the major lack of diversity in our profession. States may need to address the possibility of increased misconduct claims and consider potential solutions, such as sub-committees to review Rule 8.4(g) complaints. States may also need to consider increasing the amount of available education for lawyers on bias and diversity issues.
