For general admission:
- After review of your application and documents, the Court will send an email requesting online payment of the attorney admission fee.
- After the fee is paid, you will be emailed and asked to complete the Oath of Office.
- After completing the Oath, you are considered a full member of the bar and will be sent a Certificate of Admission in the mail (may take up to 6 weeks).
For government and MDL attorneys:
Government and MDL attorneys are not required to pay a fee and do not complete an Oath of Office. Therefore, after submitting the required application and documents, an attorney will be emailed once processing is complete and given access to e-file.
NOTE: If you are a MDL attorney who plans to appear in person or a former government attorney, please contact the Clerk’s Office at 313-234-5000 for instructions to apply for full admission.
