This podcast will explore the changes that have been adopted in some states, as well as those being contemplated in other jurisdictions around the country, to legal ethics rules and other regulations in an attempt to expand the legal profession’s ability to collaborate and partner with nonlawyers and thereby increase efficiency, expand opportunity, promote innovation, and improve access to legal services. *We’ll discuss how the American Bar Association’s Model Rules of Professional Conduct Rule 5.4 on lawyer professional independence and Rule 5.5 on unauthorized practice of law may unnecessarily impede lawyers who want to collaborate with nonlawyers and who wish to provide legal services across state lines. *The historical background of these rules and issues that conflict with law practice in a digital age were already a hot topic of discussion before the pandemic but have rapidly moved to the forefront as the pandemic forced lawyers to work from home and embrace the increased use of technology in the practice of law.
