Recommendation #17 To: Bar of California, State
To improve its effectiveness, the State Bar's audit and review unit should establish a formal process to follow up on and ensure implementation of recommendations from its twice-yearly audits.
1-Year Agency Response
The State Bar provided a copy of its Office of the Chief Trial Counsel's policy directive issued in January 2010 creating a formal process for the Audit and Review Unit to follow up on and ensure implementation of recommendations from its twice-yearly audits. The formal process includes the preparation of a memorandum summarizing the overall findings of the audit. The memorandum is then shared with and discussed by the Office of the Chief Trial Counsel's management team and used as the basis for an all-staff meeting and training. (See 2011-406 p. 73)
