Sue Talia and Practicing Law Institute Partner for Free Jan 30 Program on Unbundling –It Will be Available Online Then and Afterwards

On Jan 30, 9 AM Pacific, Sue Talia will be presenting a three hour online program through PLI on unbundling. The  program is free, and will also be available online afterwards.

Here is the link to the information.  You can find out there if it is approved for continuing legal information in your state — it appears to be approved for many states, and even in some non-US countries.

Sue, of course, is a real leader in this field, and particularly in presenting the concepts in ways that show how appealing the approach can be for lawyers in the market.

This is an extract from the promotional materials:

Why You Should Attend

This program will provide an introduction to the rapidly changing practice of limited scope representation (often called “unbundling”) in a family law context, including all of the fee agreements, forms and other materials you will need to practice limited scope representation competently, safely and profitably.

What You Will Learn

The ethical rules governing limited scope representation
How to limit risk, including malpractice and insurance coverage issues
How to identify the cases which lend themselves to limited scope representation
How to reach a currently untapped pool of paying clients
How to market your limited scope practice
How to use limited scope to expand pro bono recruitment, lawyer for a day programs, and stretch legal services budgets farther

Who Should Attend

Solo and small firm family lawyers who serve middle class and moderate income clients, any family lawyer who wants to expand their client and referral base, and pro bono recruiters and legal services providers who want to learn how to help more clients with limited funding would benefit from attending this program.

Congratulations to all.  Please spread the word in your states.

    Hi Richard! Thanks for sharing this PLI/Sue Talia training on unbundled practice. I hope pro bono programs join the call en mass. Unbundled services can make a huge difference in setting large group/clinic/workshop work flows–where 1 lawyer supported by 2 or so non lawyers can help a large group of people produce tangible results out of the event. Unbundled and pro bono can lead to really going from a one laywer:one client model to a one lawyer: many clients model. With the the funding opportunity to apply to an LSC Pro Bono Opportunity Grants in February–this could be a really way to leverage existing resources and improve Access To Justice, quality, services, and close gaps in areas where there are little or no services by traditional providers. LSC is holding a webinar to lend about the pro bono initiatives fund on 2/2.

    Pro bono+unbundled+technology to support these workflows= increases in Access to Justice in underserved areas and/or for underserved communities!
