The Nebraska Supreme Court has the inherent power and duty to prescribe standards of conduct for attorneys admitted to practice law in Nebraska; to determine what constitutes grounds for the discipline of attorneys: to disbar, suspend, censure, or reprimand for cause attorneys whose failure to comply with the obligations of a member of the bar has been duly established.
Attorneys are a part of the judicial system of the State and are officers of its courts. A license to practice law confers no vested right, but is a conditional privilege, revocable for cause.
The discipline of attorneys is for the protection of the public, the profession, and the administration of justice.
