SUPREME COURT OF NEW JERSEY
NOTICE TO THE BAR

Re: Amendments to Rules Governing the IOLTA Program (R. 1:28A)

Last September, the Supreme Court published for comment Rule amendment proposals that had been presented by the Trustees of the IOLTA Program. Comments on the amendments were received and reviewed by the Court. At the direction of the Court, IOLTA Trustees met in January with representatives of the banking industry to discuss the proposed changes.

After consideration of the proposals and the comments they generated, the Supreme Court has adopted modified amendments to Rules 1:21-6(a) and 1:28A. The amendments take effect March 1, 2003.

In addition to adopting the Rule amendments, the Court has prepared an Administrative Determination that addresses the changes to the IOLTA Rules and Guidelines. The Administrative Determination is being published simultaneously with this Notice and the Rule amendments.

Stephen W. Townsend, Esquire
Clerk of the Supreme Court
Dated: February 6, 2003
