Unauthorized Practice of Law Details


Price:

Course Description

The unauthorized practice of law, (UPL), is "engaging in the practice of law by persons or entities not authorized to practice law" and the State needs to control who holds themselves out as an attorney to give value to the licensing and ethics control entities such as the Bar Associations and Court systems. Tensions arise when consumers need certain services which they may believe are too costly if performed by a bona fide lawyer or firm. This course outlines those tensions, the balancing factors which certain states have used to address these issues and takes a close look at several situations in which the non-lawyer entities may pose a risk to the public, and where lawsuits have been necessary to limit or curtail these non-lawyer entities.
