Last February, I reported that the ABA approved a resolution encouraging lawyers to consider providing unbundled legal services when appropriate. See here. According to a report accompanying the resolution, such representation can increase access to legal services.
I have expressed my doubts about the concept of unbundling of legal services and I am not sure what all the brouhaha is about (see here). Likewise, here is a comment on why unbundling is not as easy as it sounds.
