The Legal Profession's Monopoly on the Practice of Law
Start Date: 10/18/2013Start Time: 9:00 AM
End Date: 10/18/2013End Time: 5:00 PM

Event Description:

The Stein Center for Law and Ethics and the Fordham Law Review are sponsoring The Legal Profession's Monopoly on the Practice of Law, a one-day colloquium on October 18, 2013 at Fordham Law School. 

The legal profession’s monopoly on the practice of law continues to raise a host of ethical, practical and theoretical questions. What are the unique challenges to the unauthorized practice of law in the age of e-lawyering and web-based legal services?  Are new approaches to fee-splitting, advertising and attorney-client relationships needed in the internet age?  What, if any, lessons can we learn from new international models of alternative business structures?  What is the relationship between lawyers’ monopoly and insufficient access to legal services? Is a new response needed by educational institutions to the expansion of law-related work by non-lawyers? The colloquium will bring together scholars who are thinking about these and other issues from various perspectives, with the aim of collectively grappling with these difficult and timely questions.
