Thursday, September 12, 2019 12:00 PM Eastern Daylight Time (EDT) - 1:00 PM Eastern Daylight Time (EDT)

Speaker: Toni Marsh, J.D.

As the paralegal profession grows in numbers, prestige, and range, highly educated and sophisticated paralegals are taking on ever more responsibility and working with increasing independence. This is wonderful for the profession and the public, which enjoys increased access to justice and reduced legal costs. But as the profession expands, it becomes ever more important to define the boundaries of unauthorized practice of law and clearly describe what is. ln this interactive session, Professor Marsh will explain what it means to practice law, provide a concise e-element test to recognize when a situation involves giving legal advice, and take through real and hypothetical situations to demonstrate the concepts reviewed.

Learning Objectives:
1. Describe the Practice of Law
2. Define Legal Advice
3. Identify the codes, rules, opinions and case law that relate to UPL
4. Avoid UPL.
