Task Force on the Model Definition of the Practice of Law

Comments on Draft Definition


Comment Submitted via Email


I suggest that language be added to the definition to clarify regarding nonlawyer representation currently permitted or which may be permitted in future pursuant to statute, court rule, administrative regulation, or other governmental authority. Although this issue is addressed to some extent in the draft's Comment [2], I believe the following language should be added to the definition at the end of (d)(4): "or as otherwise allowed pursuant to statute, court rule, administrative regulation, or other governmental authority". Please see the materials referenced below, which I believe support my suggestion. Thank you.
