82 Miss. L.J. Supra 61 (2013) (invited symposium article)
In this article, which was presented at the Mississippi Law Journal's Poverty and Access to Justice Symposium, I argue that Mississippi’s current court-defined definition of the practice of law – as well as the proposed new definition of the practice of law that is now awaiting the Supreme Court’s approval – are both so broad that they prevent competition from nonlawyer professionals who might be able to provide the same services as lawyers at low or no cost.
