Because of the controversy regarding actions by the Securities and Exchange Commission, through administrative rather than court proceedings, to discipline attorneys whose services were used in transactions that the Commission believes violate the securities laws, the Administrative Conference undertook a study of procedures and concerns of federal departments and agencies in disciplining attorneys practicing before them. The Conference concludes that any current problems arising from the discipline of attorneys by federal agencies are not of such magnitude or so widespread as to require legislative action or the adoption of uniform federal standards.
