The Kansas Supreme Court is accepting comment on a proposed rule that addresses assistance judicial branch employees provide to members of the public.
Proposed Supreme Court Rule 1402 expands guidance given to judicial branch employees by outlining differences between giving legal information and providing legal advice. A judicial branch employee may provide information about the judicial branch when assisting a member of the public but cannot provide legal advice that would constitute the practice of law.
The proposed rule is available for review on the Kansas judicial branch website at http://www.kscourts.org under the heading What's New.
You may submit comment by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. The subject line must read "Rule 1402." Or, you can send a written comment by U.S. mail to:
