State Supreme Court Regulation of Professional Ethics, 72 Notre Dame L. Rev. 1177 (1997)
The, primary regulatory authority of the states over the legal profession
is historically grounded and institutionally secure. There have
been and will continue to be conflicts with the federal government
over certain aspects of that reguJatory,authority. This is an inevitable
aspect of our federal system. After all, inasmuch as there are conflicts
between state and federal authority in the regulation of business, the
environment, welfare and education, to say nothing of tax policy, how
could we expect there would not be parallel conflicts concerning regulation
of the legal profession?
