New Article: The Overreach of Limits on “Legal Advice”

New Article: Lauren Sudeall, The Overreach of Limits on “Legal Advice”, 131 Yale L.J. Forum 637 (2022). Abstract below:

Nonlawyers, including court personnel, are typically prohibited from providing legal advice. But definitions of “legal advice” are unnecessarily broad, creating confusion, disadvantaging self-represented litigants, and possibly raising due-process concerns. This Essay argues for a narrower, more explicit definition of legal advice that advances, rather than undercuts, access to justice.
