Supreme Court of Virginia Amends UPL Rules

On April 26, 2019, the Supreme Court of Virginia adopted an amendment to Part Six, Section I of the Rules of Court governing the Unauthorized Practice of Law after considering a petition approved by the Council of the Virginia State Bar and subsequently presented to the Court on March 4, 2019.

The new rules are now more organized and streamlined, making them easier for lawyers to understand and to apply.

The amendments take effect on July 1, 2019. The Court’s full order may be found here.
