A white paper by the ABA Standing Committee on the Delivery of Legal Services. This white paper has been prepared by the American Bar Association’s Standing Committee on the Delivery of Legal Services. The purpose of the paper is to provide policy-makers with information and analysis on the ways in which various states are formulating or amending rules of professional conduct, rules of procedure and other rules and laws to enable lawyers to provide a limited scope of representation to clients who would otherwise proceed on a pro se basis, and to regulate that representation.
