Supreme Court amends financial contribution reporting rules

Indiana attorneys will soon be required to report an additional type of financial contribution to the Indiana Supreme Court after the court amended the pro bono reporting rules last week.  

Under amended Rule of Professional Conduct 6.7(a)(3), Hoosier attorneys will be required to report any monetary contributions made to an “IRC 501(c)(3) bar foundation in Indiana which provides financial support to a qualifying legal service organization or local pro bono district.” No other financial contribution reporting requirements – including contributions to the Indiana Bar Foundation, listed IRC 501(c)(3) pro bono districts, statutorily designated legal service organizations and/or other in-kind contributions – were amended.

The amendment, adopted Sept. 26, will take effect Jan. 1.
