Presented by: State Bar of Wisconsin Nonresident Lawyers Division
Nonresident Wisconsin attorneys often reside or work in jurisdictions where they are not admitted to practice. Could your cross-border activities constitute unauthorized practice of law? Moreover, federal practice in jurisdictions beyond state lines may give rise to UPL questions as well.
What will you learn?
- What interstate activities are permitted without constituting UPL
- When federal practice is permitted outside of the jurisdiction where
- What admission to a federal court means for an out-of-state attorney
- How to cross state lines without crossing ethical boundaries
Today, even basic transactions and simple lawsuits regularly cross state
lines. When you’re not careful, you may run afoul of other states’ rules
regarding unauthorized practice of law. This seminar will help you address
cross-border pitfalls and federal or other cross-border practice.
