About This Course
Many, if not most lawyers, engage in multijurisdictional (MJP) practice from time to time. For example, a criminal defense lawyer might be asked to represent a client in a state where she is not licensed. Or perhaps a lawyer is asked to travel to a state where he is not licensed to negotiate a contract. Some lawyers, those who practice immigration law for example, regularly engage in MJP. This is an increasingly important topic because MJP will only become more common in the future, especially with the rapid advancement of technology. This presentation covers the basics of ABA Model Rule 5.5 (with some state variations) as well as its intertwinement with Rule 8.5.
