Bar Votes to Ease Rules Limiting Out-of-State Lawyers
New York Lawyer -- June 24, 2003
By John Caher -- New York Law Journal


Reacting to a modern trend toward cross-border lawyering, the New York State Bar Association on Saturday endorsed a proposal to update the rules on who is allowed to practice law in this state and under what conditions.

The State Bar's policymaking body voted to support so-called "multi-jurisdictional practice" — whereby lawyers admitted in other states but not New York are permitted to practice here. However, the support was conditioned on subjecting the out-of-jurisdiction attorneys to New York's disciplinary rules and authorities.
