ELC 2.4 REVIEW COMMITTEES (a) Function. A review committee performs the functions provided under these rules, delegated by the Board or the Chair, or necessary and proper to carry out its duties. (b) Membership. The Chair appoints three or more review committees of three members each from among the Board members. Each review committee consists of two lawyers and one nonlawyer. The Chair may reassign members among the several committees on an interim or permanent basis. The Chair does not serve on a review committee. (c) Review Committee Chair. The Chair of the Disciplinary Board designates one member of each review committee to act as its chair. (d) Terms of Office. A review committee member serves as long as the member is on the Board. (e) Distribution of Cases. The Clerk assigns matters to the several review committees under the Chair’s direction, equalizing the committee’s caseloads as possible. (f) Meetings. A review committee meets at times and places determined by the review committee chair, under the general direction of the Chair of the Disciplinary Board. In the review committee chair’s discretion, the committee may meet and act through electronic, telephonic, written, or other means of communication. (g) Adjunct Review Committee Members. Notwithstanding other provisions of these rules, if deemed necessary to the efficient operation of the discipline system, the Board may authorize the Chair to appoint former Board members as adjunct review committee members for a period deemed necessary by the Chair, but those appointments terminate at the end of the term of the Chair making the appointment. The Chair may remove adjunct review committee members when deemed appropriate. The Chair may appoint adjunct review committee members to existing review committees or may create adjunct review committees. An adjunct member has the same authority as a regular review committee member and must comply with rule 2.3(b)(5) but is not otherwise a Board member. [Adopted effective October 1, 2002.]
