BAR MEMBERSHIP RENEWAL

Active bar members are required to renew their bar memberships every six years. See Local Rule 701.2.b.

The Court will only accept renewal applications filed electronically through our electronic filing system, CM/ECF. If you are an active member of our bar and due to renew in the current calendar year, you will receive an electronic notification of renewal by June 1 (or the first business day thereafter) of the calendar year. Renewal applications are due on July 1 (or the first business day thereafter), with a late deadline of August 31.

For additional information about this year’s electronic renewal process, click here.

Reactivation and Reinstatement of Membership

Inactive members of our bar who became inactive for failure to renew their membership are eligible for reactivation at any time. See Standing Order 2012-02. This procedure is not available for members who were disbarred or suspended from the bar. See Local Rule 705.4 (reinstatement procedure).

For additional information about reactivation of membership, click here. If you have been suspended, disbarred, or deemed ineligible for continued membership and would like to petition for reinstatement under Local Rule 705.4, please contact the Clerk’s Office at 410-962-2600 (Option 8).
