    Although Rule 38(d) currently allows recent law graduates to engage in a limited practice of law until the first offering of the Arizona bar examination, the rule was drafted in a way that downplayed or masked this opportunity for recent law graduates. Further, current Rule 38(d) is unduly complicated and unclear in large part and fails to include certain program essentials. Thus, the amendments proposed in this petition revise and reorganize the rule for clarity and substantive completeness. As revised, the proposed rule sets out the program requirements and practice restrictions for both law students and recent law graduates in a clear, organized, consistent, and complete manner.

    Amends Supreme Court Rule 38(d) to clarify the requirements for student practice and to include recent law school graduates
