The book Model Rules of Professional Conduct is written by Center For Professional Responsibility. In 1913, the Standing Committee on Professional Ethics of the American Bar Association was established to keep the Association informed of the status and activities of local bars in matters of professional ethics. In 1919 the name of the the Professional Ethics and Complaints Committee was changed; its role was expanded in 1922 to include issuing opinions “on professional conduct, and in particular on the application of the principles of ethics about it.” In 1958, the Professional Ethics and Complaints Committee was created.
Separated into two committees: a Professional Complaints Committee, with authority to review issues of professional misconduct, and a Committee on Professional Ethics with responsibility to express their opinion on the appropriate professional and judicial conduct. The Professional Complaints Committee was discontinued in 1971. The name of the Professional Ethics Committee was became the Ethics and Professional Responsibility Committee in 1971 and it stays that way.
