LCvR 83.9 requires that each member of the bar of this Court renew his or her membership every three years by filing with the Clerk of the Court, on or about July 1st of every third year, a renewal certificate and by paying a renewal fee in the amount of $25.00. Notification of the renewal requirement and the renewal certificate are electronically mailed to the last know e-mail address of all applicable attorneys prior to the renewal date. Attorneys who do not renew will not be able to practice or file pleadings in the District Court. 1 American LegalNet, Inc. www.FormsWorkFlow.com Ceremony Admission ceremonies are held on the first Monday of each month (except when Monday is a holiday, then the ceremony is held the following Monday). You will be scheduled for the first ceremony after the petition is timely received.

Please arrive no later than 9:00 A.M., as entry into the courtroom is prohibited after 9:25 A.M. Enclosed you will find a list of the closing and ceremony dates for the current year.
