Timely ABA Program

The ABA has scheduled an October 3 program on one the most important emerging topics in professional regulation--the impact of Rules 5.5 (unauthorized practice) and 8.5 (choice of disciplinary law) on modern legal practice. In speaking to bar groups, it is my impression that the significance of these rules is little understood by practicioners. Hopefully, this program will heighten awareness of the problems of unauthorized multistate practice as well as the importance of determining which ethics rule applies to a particular situation. Mistaken understanding of either or both rules can result in unwanted professional embarrassment or worse. (Mike Frisch)
