If you are not playing in the sandbox — you can still watch. A sandbox is a safe space for businesses to try innovative techniques using technology and/or deregulation to experiment.  In the legal world we have seen this in Utah and now in Arizona. The Arizona Supreme Court eliminated its ethics rules barring nonlawyers from having an economic interest in law firms or participating in fee-sharing.  It also streamlined advertising rules, and approved the licensing of legal paraprofessionals. This sandbox does have it’s own set of rules and guidelines and promotes adherence to professional principles. Those interested in legal innovation can apply for a special license administered by Arizona’s new Alternative Business Structure (ABS). You can learn more here: ABS.
