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.
