NY City Bar Association recommends allowing non-lawyers to practice law under certain circumstances

Citing the  “justice gap” that leaves more than 2.3 million low-income New Yorkers each year to navigate the civil justice system on their own, the New York City Bar Association Committee on Professional Responsibility has issued a report recommending that non-lawyers be allowed to practice, with some limitations, as “Courtroom Aides” and “Legal Technicians.”  You can read more about the story here and here (which includes a link to the report itself).
