Self-Represented Litigation Committee Launches Nebraska Limited Scope Representation Toolkit

Self-Represented Litigation Committee Launches Nebraska Limited Scope Representation Toolkit

Tuesday, June 11, 2019

Designed by judge and lawyer members of the Self-Represented Litigation Committee, the recently-launched Nebraska Limited Scope Representation Toolkit is intended to assist attorneys who are offering limited scope representation to potential clients. The toolkit is for use in civil matters in Nebraska trial courts and highlights ethics and procedural rules as well as best practices that relate to limited scope representation. It includes an overview of relevant rules, tips in the identification of suitable candidates for Limited Scope Representation, an attorney/client task list, forms, and sample letters.

Use of the toolkit is a supplement to, not a substitute for, the attorney’s familiarity with the ethics rules and professional duties, and the attorney’s exercise of judgment in providing representation.

This new resource is available on the Judicial Branch Website under the “Attorneys” section or in the Self-Help site under the “Limited Scope Representation” tab. View the Nebraska Limited Scope Representation Toolkit.
