Online licensing renewal is available for current Idaho State Bar members from approximately December 1 through March 1. New Admittee Online Licensing is available on an individual basis as applicants are approved for admission. Please contact the Licensing Department at (208) 334-4500 if you have any questions.

The 2020 licensing packets will be mailed to the current members in late November 2019 and the online licensing renewal portal will be open in early December.  The renewal portal will remain open through March 2, 2019. It will be closed for 2020 licensing on March 3, 2019.

The 2020 licensing deadline is February 3, 2020.  Payments not physically received in the Idaho State Bar Office by the deadline must be accompanied by the licensing late fee:  $100 for active and house counsel members; $25 for inactive, senior and emeritus members.  Please note that postmarks do not qualify as meeting the deadline.  The street address for overnight deliveries is 525 W. Jefferson Street, Boise, Idaho 83702. Attorneys who have not paid are encouraged to use Online Licensing Renewal. Questions may be directed to the Licensing Department at (208) 334-4500.


Individual attorneys will be able to complete their 2020 licensing paperwork and pay online by credit card or e-check beginning in early December 2020.  A convenience fee will be included to cover processing and finance charges.  If you prefer to pay by check, please use the licensing forms mailed to you.

You will need your Idaho State Bar membership number and licensing password to login. Attorneys who opted out of receiving the paper packet will receive an email with their login information. If you received the paper packet, your membership number and online password are printed on the 2020 license fee notice under your name.  The licensing packets will be mailed in early December 2019.

If you have questions, please contact Licensing at (208) 334-4500.

Firms can collect their attorneys’ information and make a single payment by credit card or check. The firm online licensing portal provides a breakdown of the fees by attorney and payment category along with calculating the total payment amount. This option allows firms to complete the licensing process with minimal paperwork and staff time.

The firm administrator will need to create a user account for creating the list of attorneys and will need the attorneys’ licensing passwords. Attorneys who opted out of receiving the paper packet will receive an email with their passwords. The licensing passwords for attorneys who received the paper packets are printed on the 2019 license fee notices under the attorneys’ names. The licensing packets will be mailed in early December. The Licensing Department at (208) 334-4500 can also assist with licensing passwords.

To help navigate the online firm licensing process, please print a copy of the Online Firm Renewal Guide before beginning the process.

If you have questions, please contact Licensing at (208) 334-4500.
