VIRGINIA UPL OPINION 68


Law Students Representing Patrons of a Legal Aid Society.

It is not the unauthorized practice of law for a law student to represent a patron of a legal aid society under the supervision of a staff attorney so long as the legal aid society approves the representation and the local rules of the general district court before which the student appears permit such representation. [UPR 1-101(A)(1)]
