  • Procedure for Admission. Every applicant for admission shall submit the required fee and shall file with the Court Clerk, on a form prescribed by the Court, a written motion for admission, which shall be referred to the Committee on Admissions and Grievances for investigation into the applicant’s qualifications and fitness to be admitted to the bar of this Court. The Committee shall report its recommendations in writing to the Court Clerk. Upon a favorable report of the Committee, the applicant may be admitted. An admission ceremony will be scheduled by the Court.
