Reprint of State Court Rules

In August a reprint of the 2016 Michie’s West Virginia State Court Rulesvolume was issued.  Due to errors and omissions in the previously issued 2016 volume, as well as the supplement thereto, this reprint completely replaces the January softbound volume AND the May 2016 softbound supplement for the state court rules.
Remember that the print version is only as current as the last edition or supplement’s publication date.  For the most current, up-to-date version of West Virginia Rules of Court, always rely upon those on the Court’s website at

Pro Bono Assistance Needed

The West Virginia State Bar needs more volunteers to sign up to provide pro bono basic legal advice on West Virginia Online Legal Help (WVOLH).  WVOLH is a website where low-income West Virginians can post questions about their civil legal needs.  Volunteer attorneys answer those questions by providing basic information, legal advice and referrals for free. Please go to and click on “Lawyers Sign Up” to sign up to volunteer.  We have almost 30 unanswered questions on the website and could use your help.
