Ethics of Multi-Jurisdictional Practice
Created on December 15, 2018
Almost all lawyers engage in multi-jurisdictional practice (MJP). Some engage in MJP on a regular basis. Failure to understand the rules surrounding MJP can lead not only to ethics violations, but also to criminal charges. Understanding these rules allows the lawyer to assist a broader range of clients. This lecture will address the complex rules that govern MJP so that you can determine when you can practice in other jurisdictions and also when it is appropriate to allow out-of-state lawyers to associate with you in your jurisdiction.
- Examine the ethical rules governing multi-jurisdictional practice
- Identify when an attorney can practice in other jurisdictions
- Explore when it is appropriate to allow out-of-state lawyers to associate with you in your jurisdiction
