    printer friendly version

    Question: I recently created a law website. Can there be a legal penalty, considering I am only 11, and have not began any type of college or law school?

    Answer:

    It depends upon what activity you are conducting on your website. If you are practicing law (which is defined in the following information), you are in violation of Arizona Supreme Court Rule 31. The following information is from the State Bar of Arizona Online

    The State Bar is committed to tracking, preventing, and educating people about the unauthorized practice of law in Arizona. The State Bar has dedicated staff to this function. Only members of the State Bar of Arizona and other persons who comply with the Arizona Supreme Court's rules regarding the practice of law may practice law in Arizona and only attorneys admitted to the State Bar of Arizona may provide legal advice in Arizona.

    Unauthorized practice of law
    The unauthorized practice of law is defined by Arizona Supreme Court Rule 31. Rule 31(a)2B states: Unauthorized practice of law includes but is not limited to:

    • Engaging in the practice of law by persons or entities not authorized to practice pursuant to paragraphs (b) or (c) or specifically admitted to practice pursuant to Rule 33(d); or
    • Using the designations “lawyer,” “attorney at law,” “counselor at law,” “law,” “law office,” “J.D.,” “Esq.,” or other equivalent words by any person or entity not authorized to practice pursuant to to paragraphs (b) or (c) or specifically admitted to practice pursuant to Rule 33(d), the use of which is reasonably likely to induce others to believe that the person or entity is authorized to engage in the practice of law in this state.

    The practice of law is defined in Arizona Supreme Court Rule 31 (a)2A as: ...providing legal advice or services to another by:
    • Preparing any document in any medium intended to affect or secure legal rights for a specific person or entity;
    • Preparing or expressing legal opinions;
    • Representing another in a judicial, quasi-judicial, or administrative proceeding, or other formal dispute resolution process such as arbitrations and mediations;
    • Preparing any document through any medium for filing in any court, administrative agency or tribunal for a specific person or entity; or
    • Negotiating legal rights or responsibilities for a specific person or entity. The definition of the practice of law is consistent with the definition in decisions by the Supreme Court of Arizona.
