Paralegals Guide to Unauthorized Practice of Law

Avoid putting yourself and your attorneys at risk by understanding and preventing unauthorized practice of law.

Paralegals are a very important part of the legal team and participate in almost all aspects of the delivery of legal services to clients. Paralegals can perform multiple types of projects under the supervision of a licensed attorney. Paralegals, however, must be careful not to commit UPL as serious consequences can accrue for violations. This topic is critical for paralegals who want to be able to identify what activities constitute the practice of law, navigate common UPL situations, prevent UPL, and avoid putting attorneys at risk for improper supervision and prevention of UPL by their paralegals.
