Do licensing regulations in the legal profession protect consumers against incompetence? Or are they just your garden-variety anticompetitive measures intended to keep prices high? In my latest Forbes article, I argue that the latter is true and suggest that there would be great societal benefits in deregulating the legal profession.
Especially unconscionable is the way bar association “Unauthorized Practice of Law” committees go after people who dare to offer help to others with legal problems.
