The OSB Bulletin, May 2012 edition, has a good article on the unauthorized practice of law (UPL) in Oregon. (You can also find it from the OSB Bulletin archives, which are available to the public.)
The article is written for lawyers but everyone will find something useful in it – and the things you learn might save you time, aggravation, money, and self-respect.

I’ve blogged before about this subject of UPL and about how paralegals are not lawyers (repeat often!). These are important lessons every consumer of legal services needs to know.
