Multijurisdictional Practice and Transactional Lawyers: Time for a Rule That Is Honored Rather Than Honored in Its BreachRead Time: 1 min
Whenever a lawyer travels out-of-state, or whenever a lawyer works remotely from a state where the lawyer is not licensed, the multijurisdictional practice prohibitions come into play.
Member Michael H. Rubin (Baton Rouge) co-wrote an article on multijurisdictional practice and transactional lawyers for the LSU Law Review with James Geoffrey Durham from the University of Dayton. The article goes through the history of the prohibitions on multijurisdictional practice for lawyers, notes the deficiencies in the current Rules of Professional Conduct, and suggests potential solutions.
