Supreme Court Committee on Legal Education
The Supreme Court Committee on Legal Education was appointed by Order of the Supreme Court of Georgia, dated April 4, 2007, and charged with studying legal educational developments, including alternative forms of legal education – particularly distance education – and presenting recommendations for Rules changes, should they be necessary, to the Board of Bar Examiners and the Supreme Court for review and action. The Committee issued its Report and Recommendations in June 2008. In July 2008, the Board of Bar Examiners unanimously approved the Committee's Report and Recommendations and revised the Waiver Process and Policy in accordance with the Recommendations. On September 3, 2008, the Supreme Court entered Orders by which it accepted and approved the Committee's Report and Recommendations and approved the revised Waiver process and Policy.
