Though the ABA Model Rules are intended to serve as a template for states to follow, the Model Rules are neither mandatory nor enforceable.  Model Rules provisions on the unauthorized practice of law have developed in response to social change but the language suggested is rarely followed in its exact form. The disparity between the Model Rules and what states actually require can cause significant confusion leading to the unintentional unauthorized practice of law. This presentation highlights some of those differences to help attorneys avoid jurisdictional traps and gotchas.
