This interactive course and companion text considers the extent to which people with legal training, but no practice license, can use the law, as a social and economic variable, to better manage risk without fear of prosecution or civil liability.

The dramatic changes in the legal profession since the 2008 market crash, from the increase in virtual law practice to the rise of DIY services to clients’ increasing demand for efficiencies, have led to a recognition that nonlawyers have an increasingly critical role in the delivery of legal services. The debate gets hotter each day over what nonlawyers, people or computers, can do without running afoul of unauthorized practice of law restrictions.

Designed especially for nonlawyer masters and international LLM programs, these materials are also ideal for JD students in their early studies, and include:

  • Textbook
  • 1 hour of instructional videos on overview of UPL
