Abstract

We discuss the concept of "unbundled" representation in litigation matters, in which a client retains a lawyer to provide legal services short of those that would be provided in a traditional attorney client relationship. Specifically, we trace the evolution of the process of mainstreaming unbundled representation in three case study states: Colorado, Massachusetts, and Alabama. We conclude by providing a comprehensive bibliography of academic and some other writings on the subject of unbundled representation.

Keywords: unbundled represenation, limited assistance representation
