The ABA Standing Committee on the Delivery of Legal Services April 14 announced that it has created a Web site dedicated to helping lawyers as well as state and local policymakers get a better handle on the rising phenomenon of "unbundling" legal services and assisted pro se representation.

The Web site also links to a guide on providing limited-scope representation, which was prepared in conjunction with a task force of the ABA Litigation Section.
