A proposal for a legal lab, where lawyers, companies, and other entities can offer innovative approaches to offering legal services, will be in the final recommendations of the Special Committee to Improve the Delivery of Legal Services.

The committee on June 10 voted 5-1 to include the idea of a legal lab, which has also been referred to as a regulatory sandbox, in its final report, which is due to be submitted to the Supreme Court and the Bar Board of Governors by July 1. Committee members have previously said they liked the idea of a lab in Florida, but the vote means it will almost certainly be in their final report.
