State Bar Programs / Part IX - Professionalism / Rule 9-101. Purpose.
This Part of the State Bar Rules is adopted in recognition of the importance of professionalism as the ultimate hallmark of the practice of law. The purpose of this Part is to create within the State Bar a Commission to identify, enunciate and encourage adherence to non-mandatory standards of professional conduct. These standards should involve aspirations higher than those required by the Georgia Rules of Professional Conduct in Part IV.
