The Latest Changes to New York’s Law of Lawyering

The Latest Changes to New York’s Law of Lawyering

New York and other states have increasingly recognized the need to change how the practice of law will be regulated in their jurisdictions. Such changes are driven by the failure to provide adequate access to legal services, requirements for diversity in the profession, and the financial burdens on lawyers in their practice. In New York, NYSBA’s Task Force discussed the inadequacy of the current required examinations for admission to the bar and offered alternatives. Chief Judge Janet DiFiore’s Working Group on Regulatory Innovation has considered and discussed the provision of legal services and investment in law firms by non-lawyers and the need to improve access to justice in the state. Other innovations have been adopted in Arizona, California, Illinois, Oregon, Utah, and Washington with some success (and failure). The American Bar Association’s Center for Innovation has asked its membership to consider changes to the law of lawyering.
