(b) Procedure for Admission

Each applicant for admission to the bar of this court shall file with the clerk's office a completed Petition and Oath on Admission on a form provided by the clerk's office.  A copy shall be forwarded by the clerk's office, along with the required fee as published on the court's website. Submission of a completed Petition and Oath on Admission to the bar of this court constitutes the applicant’s consent to have the clerk's office obtain the applicant's public and non-public disciplinary history from the New Hampshire Attorney Discipline Office.

Upon the court's approval of the application, the applicant shall be admitted to the bar of this court upon taking the prescribed oath or affirmation. Applicants must be sworn in as members of the district's bar within one year of the date their application is approved or their application will be deemed inactive and a new application will be required.

Upon payment of the admission fee as published on the court's website, which includes a fee for deposit to the United States District Court Library Fund, the applicant shall then be a member of the bar of this court.
