Opinions Proposed On Unauthorized Practice Issues

The Virginia State Bar has put out for public comment a series of proposed opinions regarding the unauthorized practice of law. The opinions deal with a number of issues. First, whether in-house counsel who are physically located outside of Virginia but deal with interpretation of Virginia law must comply with the Commonwealth's registration rules. Second, whether a non-lawyer certified public accountant can provide representation at an NASD hearing. Third, whether a retired lawyer who owns a tract of land with others can represent himself and the others in matters related to the tract. Each announcement links to the full text of the proposed opinions. (Mike Frisch)
