ABA House of Delegates approved a new consumer-friendly rule today which will allow lawyers who move to a new state the ability to practice in that jurisdiction for up to a year while seeking bar admission. Responsive Law supports this action and believes that this change will benefit consumers by allowing a greater amount of lawyer mobility, which will give consumers a larger choice in their legal service provider. Moreover, with the approval of this rule, the ABA is adapting, albeit slowly, to the expectations of both consumers and lawyers in today’s mobile society.
