The State Professional Responsibility Board (SPRB) oversees the Bar’s investigative process, working with Disciplinary Counsel’s Office and Local Professional Responsibility Committees to evaluate complaints of ethical misconduct. The SPRB also acts like a grand jury in the lawyer discipline process, reviewing investigative results and, where warranted, authorizing formal disciplinary charges against lawyers. Those charges are then set for trial before panels of the Disciplinary Board. The SPRB has nine members, seven lawyers from geographic regions around the state and two public members. SPRB members serve four-year terms and may not be reappointed.
