It is possible that after a project is assigned to a Lawclerk, the Attorney may want to modify the scope of the posted Project. For example, after receiving an initial submission, the Attorney may determine that a new legal issue that is outside of the scope of the project should also be researched. In such case, the Attorney can communicate with the Lawclerk about changing the scope of the project to address both the initial legal issue, as well as the new legal issue that is beyond the initial scope of the project.
Only Attorneys may request a scope change. A scope change can only occur if both the Attorney and the Lawclerk agree to the scope change. When an Attorney requests a scope change, the Lawclerk is notified and must accept or reject the requested scope change.
