Navigating the World of Multijurisdictional Practice – Ethical & Practical Concerns

Program Number
Program Date
CLE Credits

Every state has adopted a Rule of Professional Conduct permitting attorneys to engage in multijurisdictional practice (MJP). MJP permits attorneys to handle limited matters in states where they are not licensed, subject to certain limitations. Because the MJP Rule of Professional Conduct, generally Rule 5.5, can differ from state to state, and because some states place restrictions on MJP greater than those in the Model Rule of Professional Conduct adopted by the American Bar Association, concerns arise about what conduct is permissible and what constitutes the unauthorized practice of law. 

This program will discuss the Model Rule and some of the variations and provide practical and ethical guidance for attorneys whose practice raises these issues.
