Iowa considers new rules for law students, grads

~DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - The Iowa Supreme Court is considering whether to give law students and recent graduates more authority to provide legal services.
 
     Several rules changes are being sought by Iowa Legal Aid and the Office of Professional Regulation as a way to serve more low-income clients.
 
     They would expand circumstances under which students and graduates who are waiting to take the bar exam or receive results could engage in limited legal practice.
 
     One change would allow graduates to temporarily practice on behalf of certain organizations and government agencies under supervision.
 
     Another would make clear that students who've completed three semesters or more can represent clients in an administrative contested case proceeding without a supervising attorney present.
 
     The court says it will gather input through March 10 before taking any action on them.
