The Unauthorized Practice of Law vs. Consumers' Right to Access the Legal System
The Florida Association of Legal Document Preparers presents a collection of essays about the unauthorized practice of law (UPL) in contrast to consumers' right to access the legal system. In Florida there is a vast gray wasteland where the unauthorized practice of law resides. The most egregious incidents of UPL should be vigilantly prosecuted -- those incidents where a nonlawyer pretends to be a lawyer and causes harm to a consumer.
We strive to frame this issue in the context of consumers' rights. Our belief is that some consumers are not able to afford to hire an attorney. Others are unable to comprehend form instructions to prepare the forms themselves.
