Title
From the reference desk to the jail house : unauthorized practice of law and librarians
Source
Legal reference services quarterly. 13(1994) no.4, S.31-45
Year
1994
Abstract
The American Association of Law Librarians Code of Ethics requires librarians to avoid the unauthorized practice of law while providing access to legal information. Provides guidelines and suggestions to help librarians distinguish legal advice from legal information in the context of working with the public. Defining the activities that constitute Unauthorized practice of law is difficult and an ever evolving grey area. Reference service should be confined to assisting patrons in locating legal information and instructing patrons in the use of legal materials using examples unrelated to the patron's issue and advising patrons with legal problems to consult a lawyer
