Qualifications of Supervising Attorney.
An attorney is qualified to act as a supervising attorney who:
(1) Is actively licensed in Idaho;
(2) Has practiced law for at least 5 years immediately prior to submission of the legal intern Application; and
(3) Has never been publicly sanctioned in Idaho or any other state or territory of the United States or the District of Columbia, unless the Board approves the attorney to act as a supervising attorney.
It is the responsibility of the supervising attorney to immediately notify the Idaho Supreme Court and the Idaho State Bar if the legal intern is no longer employed or engaged by the supervising attorney or if there has been a change in the legal intern’s place of residence which impairs the ability of the supervising attorney to perform his or her duties.
A supervising attorney shall not supervise more than 2 legal interns except in a clinical course offered by an Approved Law School.
With the approval of the supervising attorney, any attorney in the supervising attorney’s firm, law offices or practice may supervise and direct the work of the legal intern.
