individuals who are not authorized to practice law in Arizona to join as
members, such as law students, inactive or retired lawyers, and lawyers
admitted to practice only in other states. If you are a prospective
client, and someone tells you they are an "AWLA member," that does not
necessarily mean they can provide you with legal representation in
Arizona. If you want to find out if someone is authorized to represent
you in Arizona, you should contact the State Bar of Arizona at http://www.azbar.org/WorkingWithLawyers/Topics/HowtoFindandHireaLawyer
If you are an AWLA member who is not authorized to practice law in
Arizona, it is your responsibility to make sure that you do not
communicate your AWLA membership in a way that would lead others to
believe that you are in fact authorized to practice law in Arizona,
because doing so could constitute the unauthorized practice of law under
Rule 31(a)(2)(B) of the Rules of the Arizona Supreme Court. The State
Bar has resources to help you understand what kinds of communications
would constitute the unauthorized practice of law, and we recommend that
you consult them with any questions. Their website is www.azbar.org/ethics/unauthorizedpracticeoflaw and their phone number is (602) 340-7292.
