§50-4-4a. Appearance in civil cases.
Any party to a civil action in a magistrate court may appear
and conduct such action in person, by agent or by attorney.
Appearance by an agent or attorney shall have the same effect as
appearance by the party represented, and the appearance by an agent
shall not constitute the unlawful practice of law. No magistrate
may act as such agent or attorney.
