Originally from Securities Arbitration: Practice and Forms
In January 2007, the Committee on the Unauthorized Practice of Law in New Jersey (Committee) issued Opinion 43 to address an inquiry regarding whether an out-of-state attorney may appear before a panel of the American Arbitration Association in New Jersey. The Committee determined that an out-of-state attorney may represent a party in an arbitration proceeding conducted in New Jersey, if there has not been a complaint filed in New Jersey on the issue and if the attorney is admitted and in good standing in another jurisdiction. While Opinion 43 continues to permit representation by an out-of- state attorney in alternative dispute resolution forums, it changes the prerequisites for appearance by the out-of-state attorney.
