The seminar will focus on the definition of limited scope representation and how we are ethically able to use it in Nebraska. We will discuss the specific Rules of Professional Conduct and Rules of Pleading in Civil Cases as well as relevant case law outlining the ethics of limited scope representation.  We will end the discussion with an overview of the forms that are required per the Rules of Professional Conduct. Each attendee will be provided with sample forms, fee agreement, and correspondence that relate to limited scope representation. There will also be a component that addresses how public interest lawyers and pro bono attorneys can utilize limited scope representation to assist a greater number of clients as well as promote the administration of justice.
