The rules and regulations were adopted by the North Carolina State Bar Council and approved by the North Carolina Supreme Court pursuant to N.C.G.S. §84-21. The Revised Rules of Professional Conduct, which establish the ethical code of conduct for North Carolina lawyers, are found under a separate entry in the menu called, “Rules of Professional Conduct.” The rules that follow govern the administration of the State Bar, including such things as the organization of the State Bar council, membership and dues requirements, procedures for the discipline of lawyers, and the regulation of organizations practicing law. They also contain the procedures for the various programs of the North Carolina State Bar, including the client security fund, continuing legal education, specialization, IOLTA (interest on lawyers’ trust accounts), and the Lawyer Assistance Program.
