To the Same Extent and in the Same Manner as Other Attorneys

Administrative Law

28 CFR § 77.2(k) [28 CFR PART 77—ETHICAL STANDARDS FOR ATTORNEYS FOR THE GOVERNMENT]

As used in this part, the following terms shall have the following meanings, unless the context indicates otherwise:
[…]
(k) The phrase “to the same extent and in the same manner as other attorneys” means that Department attorneys shall only be subject to laws and rules of ethical conduct governing attorneys in the same manner as such rules apply to non-Department attorneys. The phrase does not, however, purport to eliminate or otherwise alter state or federal laws and rules and federal court rules that expressly exclude some or all government attorneys from particular limitations or prohibitions.
