Next Friday: Debating lawyer licensing in L.A.

Larry Ribstein —  15 July 2011

Here’s the info.   Some of my writing is here and here.  This is one of the big regulatory issues of our time.  It’s not just about who makes how much money, but access to justice.  The current system of compulsory licensing for the practice of law is doomed.  The question is not whether it will end, but when and how.  The practicing bar can be the problem or part of the solution.

If you’re in L.A. next Friday, July 22, stop in.
