Notice of 2017 Attorney Renewal Process and Deadlines

In order to comply with Local Rule 701.2.b, members of this bar wishing to maintain an active bar status are required to periodically renew their memberships.  As of January 1, 2012, all active members of the bar must now renew their memberships electronically through CM/ECF.  We will no longer accept renewal applications or payment by mail or in person at the Clerk’s Office.  However, active attorneys remain eligible for renewal every six years and the renewal fee is $75.00.

You can check your renewal date here.  If you are due for renewal in 2017, are an active member of our bar, and have registered for CM/ECF, you will receive an email notification on or before June 1, 2017, with instructions for renewing your membership.  You do not need to take any action at this time.  Because notices are only sent electronically, it is important that all attorneys continue to maintain current contact information—particularly email addresses—in CM/ECF.  If you need to update your information, instructions are available here.

If you are an active member of our bar and are not registered for CM/ECF, you must register as a CM/ECF user by May 16, 2017, in order to receive your 2017 renewal information.  Registration is free and instructions are available here.  If you are not interested in retaining active membership in our bar once your current membership period expires, you do not need to register and your membership will automatically move to inactive status at the time you would normally be due to renew.

If you have any questions about this process, please contact Attorney Admissions at 410-962-3293.

  *Attorneys who have not submitted a renewal by August 1 will need to request reactivation or reapply for admission and pay the required fees.  See Standing Order 2016-04.
