Default Re: Bitter Academics Who Torture

Rules of practice for lawyers are enforced by courts. The courts are in charge of who is admitted to practice before them and who is disbarred. There is an administrative framework around all this, often pretty detailed, which supervises the bar exams, examines grievances etc. The canons of ethics are usually adopted by the court.
The ABA is a national club. Some states require membership in their state bar associations as a condition of being licensed to practice. In these states, the association may have a formal administrative role with grievances etc. I don't know. The state bar associations I have known are always happy to buzz around, taking positions on legislation etc but they are only clubs. They do not admit or disbar anyone.
