LMA members are being asked to respond to the following survey questions in order to help the Future of Lawyering Committee of the Association of Professional Responsibility Lawyers (APRL) assess how the Rules of Professional Conduct regulating referral fees may need to be updated to reflect the changing nature of legal practice. We ask that you please take this 5-10 minute survey by Friday, September 6 at noon CT.
Your responses will be kept confidential. We will only disseminate aggregate survey data, without attribution to any particular law firm. As a bonus, survey participants will receive a preview summary of the results.
Special Note for Professionals Working Outside of Law Firms
While APRL is gathering data points from specific users, providers and regulators, they are open to input from all who have interest in this topic. For individuals working outside of law firms, please fill in what your role is on question 2, and share your thoughts on questions 6, 7, 8, 9 and 12.
What Is APRL, and How Is LMA Involved?
LMA’s Advocacy Initiative has been working with the Future of Lawyering Committee of the Association of Professional Responsibility Lawyers (APRL) to evaluate additional Rules of Professional Conduct that may need to be updated or changed. APRL is a national organization of lawyers and law professors with expertise in the field of legal ethics and professional responsibility. APRL's committee is currently studying the ABA’s Model Rules of Professional Conduct that regulate the sharing of legal fees with other professionals in the context of referral services.
If you have any questions regarding the survey, please contact Chip Potter at firstname.lastname@example.org.
