Except as otherwise provided in Idaho Bar Commission Rule (IBCR) 227, only active members of the Idaho State Bar may enter appearances for a party, sign stipulations or receive payment or enter satisfaction of judgment, decree, or order in Idaho.
Attorneys who are not active members of the Idaho State Bar may petition an Idaho court for permission to appear pro hac vice pursuant to IBCR 227.
Original motions are to be filed with the Idaho court with copies served to all parties to the action. Contact the appropriate county or state court for information on filing requirements (fees, number of copies, etc.)
Submit the following to the Idaho State Bar at PO Box 895, Boise, ID 83701:
- One copy of the motion.
- $325 fee for each applying attorney requesting limited admission.
- A current original certificate of good standing for each applying attorney.
The motion must include:
- Name, address, phone number, email address, and bar number for each applying attorney.
- A complete list of all matters in which applying attorney has previously been admitted to under this rule.
The Idaho State Bar maintains a record of all limited admission motions as a public record, and shall promptly provide such record, upon request, to any judge seeking to know whether the applicant has previously sought limited admission.
Attorneys who wish to be admitted pro hac vice in the U.S. District Court of Idaho or other federal courts in Idaho are not subject to IBCR 227 and should contact the appropriate federal court to obtain information on their pro hac vice requirements.
Questions concerning the requirements of IBCR 227 should be directed to Maureen Ryan Braley, Associate Director, or Belinda Brown at (208) 334-4500.
Questions concerning filing the original motion should be directed to the appropriate court.
