Regulation Of Foreign Lawyers

An article appearing on law.com reports that the US has begun an initiative to persuade all 50 states to regulate foreign legal representatives, 24 states currently regulate foreign legal representatives. States that regulate foreign attorneys allow them to practice the law of their home country, while they are prohibited from giving legal advice on US law unless they have passed a state's bar exam. The US action is prompted by an effort to liberalize global trade in services and to avoid a backlash from foreign countries prohibiting US lawyers in retaliation. This issue may be of concern to US immigration lawyers if foreign countries prohibit them in retaliation. Regulation of foreign lawyers is expected to be addressed during the World Trade Organization's meeting in May 2005.
