CLE: Limited Scope Representation: When Less is More

The Illinois Supreme Court amended its rules in 2013 to allow attorneys to enter limited scope appearances in civil cases and to make it easier for attorneys to provide unbundled services to their clients. Even so, many attorneys remain hesitant to incorporate limited scope representation into their practices. Join us in Chicago or via live webcast on October 13, 2016 for a look at how limited scope representation can benefit both attorneys and clients, the best practices and ethical considerations in limited scope, and how attorneys are using limited scope representation in their daily practices. The need for pro bono services in Illinois and the availability of limited scope pro bono opportunities are also discussed.

The program is presented by the ISBA Standing Committee on Delivery of Legal Services and qualifies for 3.25 hours MCLE credit, including 3.25 hours approved Professional Responsibility MCLE credit.

On-Site Registrants: This program is available at no cost to attorneys who agree to take a pro bono case in the next year.

Live Webcast Registrants: There is a $20 fee for online registrants who agree to take a pro bono case in the next year. A special thanks to Illinois Bar Foundation and the Public Interest Law Initiative for sponsoring the live webcast.
