November Field Landman Question of the MonthNovember 2015 – Articles The Rocky Mountain Landman
DAPL Member Justin Cage asked:
"I’ve recently read that if a state regulatory office considers a person’s work to be the 'unauthorized practice of law,' that person could be subject to criminal liability, court sanctions, and/or disciplinary action. What is considered the 'unauthorized practice of law' in Colorado and Wyoming? Where does work historically performed by landmen stop and 'practicing law' begin?"
