Special Committee to Improve the Delivery of Legal Services

Mission

The mission of the Special Committee to Improve the Delivery of Legal Services (Special Committee) is to study whether and how the rules governing the practice of law in Florida may be revised to improve the delivery of legal services to Florida’s consumers and to assure Florida lawyers play a proper and prominent role in the provision of these services.

The Special Committee will address lawyer advertising, referral fees, fee splitting, entity regulation, regulation of online service providers, and regulation of nonlawyer providers of limited legal services. Additional topics consistent with the subject of the study may also be addressed. The Special Committee will issue quarterly reports to the Supreme Court of Florida and The Florida Bar Board of Governors.

The work of the Special Committee will be completed by July 1, 2021.
