Abstract

A range of reforms to the way legal services may legitimately be produced and funded is underway around the United States. California, Arizona, and Utah have all moved to relax the rules about who can profit from the sale of legal services, which have historically restricted this to licensed lawyers. Utah has, in addition, moved to release restrictions on who and what may provide legal services directly to the public, permitting service models that violate longstanding unauthorized practice of law provisions that have kept nonlawyer humans and software applications from providing legal advice and representation.
