Abstract

In adopting Model Rule 5.5 the ABA hoped to both modernize the standards for multijurisdictional practice, and to promote greater uniformity in the states with respect to such practice. While the ABA’s efforts have borne substantial fruit, the degree to which these goals have been met is often overstated. In this article, I explore in depth the influence Model Rule 5.5 has had on the states, the degree of variation that remains, and the unintended consequences that may flow from this reform effort.
