Supreme Court accepting public comment on proposed Rule 1402

The Kansas Supreme Court is accepting comment on a proposed rule that addresses information that judicial branch employees may provide 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.  
 
Comment may be made by email to publiccomments@kscourts.org until 5 p.m Monday, March 25, 2019. The subject line must read "Rule 1402."
