AWLA permits 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, How to find and Hire a Lawyer.
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 Arizona State Bar Ethics in the Practice of Law and their phone number is (602) 340-7292.
