Los Angeles Unauthorized Practice of Law Lawyers
Many individuals who have not attended law school do not realize that the crime of practicing law with a license from the American Bar Association is a severe crime. Additionally, if a current law student or recent law graduate practices law without a license from the American Bar Association, there is also many sanctions that can affect that individual’s potential to be an attorney in the future.
What is important to understand about the unauthorized practice of law is that it is not permitted to provide any form of legal counsel without a license from the American Bar Association. This license is obtained by passing the Bar Exam in the state of California and by completing a Juris Doctorate degree. That being said, the state of California also allows applicants to the Bar to be licensed attorneys who have not completed a Juris Doctorate degree to practice if they are able to pass the Bar Exam without attending law school. Thus, any individual who provides legal advice, guidance or suggests any form of legal counsel to an individual or business can and will be sanctioned under California state law. Additionally, for those who are training to be attorneys and have not passed the Bar Exam as of yet, these sanctions are particularly detrimental to your future prospects of being an attorney because you will be required to attend many disciplinary hearing with the American Bar Association before you will be permitted to practice law in the future.
