The New Jersey Lawyers' Fund for Client Protection, an entity of the Supreme Court of New Jersey, exists under the authority of Rule 1:28. It was established to reimburse clients who have suffered a loss due to dishonest conduct of a member of the New Jersey Bar. The New Jersey Lawyers' Fund for Client Protection was created as a Committee of the New Jersey State Bar Association in 1961. At the request of the Bar, the New Jersey Lawyers' Fund for Client Protection took its present form in 1969 and has served as a national leader. Formerly known as the Clients' Security Fund of the Bar of New Jersey, the New Jersey Lawyers' Fund for Client Protection's nature and purpose were not affected by the 1991 name change.
