The Practising Law Institute is offering a free webcast of a live presentation from New York entitled Limited Scope Representation 2018: Ethical & Practical Challenges on November 1, 2018 from 9:00 am-11:10 am.

To respond to the access to justice crisis facing the legal system, the civil legal services community and the judiciary have partnered in the expansion of services based on limited scope representation. As a community, we have extensive experience now with limited scope representation models. 

Various models with many technology assisted interventions are being developed and information tables, drop-in legal clinics, websites and help lines have expanded.  Limited Scope Representation 2018: Ethical & Practical Challenges will focus on how these models employ best practices to respond to common ethical issues and problems that arise.
