Description: The Illinois Supreme Court amended its rules in 2013 to allow attorneys to enter limited scope appearances in civil cases and to make it easier for attorneys to provide unbundled services to their clients. Even so, many attorneys remain hesitant to incorporate limited scope representation into their practices. Join us for a look at how limited scope representation can benefit both attorneys and clients, the best practices and ethical considerations in limited scope, and how attorneys are using limited scope representation in their daily practices. The need for pro bono services in Illinois and the availability of limited scope pro bono opportunities are also discussed.
This program is available at no cost to attorneys who agree to take a pro bono case in the next year.
