Legal reform group targets Virginia's UPL rules barring help with district court forms

Via David, a group called HALT is complaining that the Virginia State Bar is taking the wrong view on an issue of the unauthorized practice law, having to do with whether it is a violation for a social worker to help pro se claimants fill out the forms for Small Claims court. Their beef - the forms are too complicated.

The opinion - UPL 207 - is here.

There is a General District Court form for just about everything. I always thought that was a good thing - no need to figure out how to draft one of those, whatever it is, just find the form.
