Rules of Admission to Oklahoma Bar Association Amended

Oklahoma Bar AssociationOn November 10, 2014, the Oklahoma Supreme Court adopted amendments to the rules governing admission to the Oklahoma Bar Association. The amendments contain minor substantive and technical changes to the ways in which attorneys may be admitted to practice law.

The amendments’ most substantive changes include several changes to the Rule Two, which governs admission by motion to the Oklahoma Bar Association for out-of-state attorneys.

Attorneys seeking admission by motion must now have already been admitted in a state where the requirements for admission are similar to Oklahoma’s admission upon motion without examination standards.

The amendments also impose restrictions how an out-of-state attorney may count the requisite five to seven years of practice in order to qualify for admission by motion.

The amendments also clarify that the final decision of whether to admit an attorney into the jurisdiction rests with the Oklahoma State Supreme Court. The remainder of the amendments clarify wording issues throughout the rules.
