Unauthorized Practice Prohibited

Job postings encouraging the unauthorized practice of law will not be accepted.

Law students may perform legal work only under the supervision of an attorney and so long as it is the lawyer who takes the work, vouches for it to the client, and is responsible to the client. An unsupervised law student who engages in legal representation or gives legal advice is no different from any other non-lawyer who also gives legal advice.

A law student who undertakes legal representation without supervision of a licensed attorney may be subject to criminal or civil penalties for the unauthorized practice of law.
