Amendments to SJC Rule 3:03

Two small amendments to the SJC Rule 3:03 that impact law students become effective October 15, 2012.

The first adds Probate and Family Court to the list of court departments in which a law student may appear for the Commonwealth and removes the Probate and Family Court from the list of courts which make student practice a matter for judicial discretion. 

The second adds Agency Counsel or Assistant Agency Counsel to the list of those who may supervise the student.

The new and old text are both available at SJC Rule 3:03.
