Abstract:     
This article examines the choice of law rule that the American Bar Association adopted for its Model Rules of Professional Conduct in 1993. It questions whether there was a need for a special choice of law rule for bar disciplinary proceedings, and suggests relying instead the choice of law principles courts already apply in legal malpractice cases and other litigation over lawyer conduct.
