Limited Scope. (Almost Boundless Opportunity)
The American Bar Association recently featured an article touting the potential “win-win” benefits of limited scope representation in the January/February 2019 issue of its GPSolo magazine. The article was penned by CBF Director of Innovation & Training Jessica Bednarz and CBF Director of Pro Bono & Court Advocacy Samira Nazem. They highlight that the advantages of limited scope or “unbundled” service options go beyond expanding access to justice, offering potentially fertile ground for solo and small firm practitioners to gain new clients who would not otherwise be served by the traditional legal market .
The article is one of many resources available through the CBF on limited scope representation. Lawyers can learn more about how to effectively build limited scope into a family law practice at a March 5th Chicago Bar Association seminar, “Expanding Your Family Law Practice Through Unbundled Service.”
