More On Unauthorized Practice

The Tennessee Supreme Court recently considered whether a non-lawyers involvement on behalf of a corporation in a proceeding before an administrative board was permissible. The court held that "[w]hen a non-lawyer's participation is put at issue, it becomes the duty of the Administrative Judge to determine whether the non-lawyer's participation may require the exercise of professional legal judgment. " It did here, thus the non-lawyer's involvement constituted unauthorized practice. (Mike Frisch)
