IAALS Releases National Framework for New Tier of Legal Professionals

As you know, and we have discussed in this blog many times, a number of states have programs that recognize "non-lawyer" legal professionals who can provide certain types of legal services.  Some of these programs have been a success, while others have struggled but they continue to be part of the debate as to options for the market of legal services.

Today I am writing to report that the Institute for the Advancement of the American Legal System at the University of Denver recently released a new report called Allied Legal Professionals: A National Framework for Program Growth which includes multiple research-informed recommendations to help standardize a new tier of legal professionals across states, with the goal of increasing the options for accessible and affordable legal help for the public.  You can read the report here.  The announcement of the publication is here.
