92 N.J.L.J. 53
January 23, 1969
Attorney Representing Members
Our attention is called, in this inquiry, to the opinion of
the United States Supreme Court in United Mine Workers v. Illinois
Bar Association, 389 U.S. 217, 19 L. Ed. 2d 426 (1967) and its
effect upon our Opinion 114 rendered on July 20, 1967, 90 N.J.L.J.
The inquiry before us, in essence, asks if our view on the questions raised in Opinion 114 would be the same, and suggests that the holding in the United Mine Workers case is contrary to the views we previously expressed.
The question before the United States Supreme Court in the United Mine Workers case concerned the unauthorized practice of law. The question decided in our Opinion 114 concerned the ethics of an attorney employed by a manufacturers' association. We, therefore, find no reason to change our holding in Opinion 114.
