Iowa moves forward with unbundling of legal services

Monday, March 26, 2007

"On March 12, the Iowa Supreme Court issued amended rules meant to clarify the conditions under which attorneys can provide limited or "unbundled" legal services to self-represented clients, also known as pro se litigants.

And within the next few months, the court is expected to authorize the first series of forms designed to be filled out by pro se litigants to assist them in filing their own cases. Under the new rules, an attorney can assist a client on a limited basis in preparing such forms without having to fully represent the person in court."
