    Limited scope representation, or “unbundling” legal services, is an alternative to the traditional full-service model where an attorney can limit the attorney-client relationship to a specific task (such as document assistance, procedural advice, or a court appearance) or issue (such as custody or pension issues in family law). This does not, however, limit lawyers’ liability who must maintain the same standard of care for a task as they would under full-service representation. Limited scope is not for every lawyer, for every client, for every legal issue, but where it is appropriate, it has proven to be safe, cost-effective to the client, profitable for the attorney, transparent to the courts, and ethical.

    In this program, M. Sue Talia, a national expert on and advocate for limited scope representation, offers the nuts and bolts of unbundling legal services, including:

    • The benefits of limited scope representation for both lawyers and clients

    • When unbundling is recommended and when it is not

    • An overview of the lawyer’s ethical obligations and malpractice risks

    • A how-to list of practical aspects

    This program is the first in a series of five webinars, Reinventing the Practice of Law: Emerging Models to Enhance Affordable Legal Services.
