Get full text of the Indiana Rules for Admission to the Bar and the Discipline of Attorneys.


At its meeting on April 27, 2001, the State Board of Law Examiners reviewed Admission and Discipline Rule 6 and defined the following items:

  • The Term “in Indiana” includes dealing with Indiana Law, representing Indiana clients, or handling cases in State and Federal Indiana Courts.
  • When determining the extent of the individual’s “practice of law” in Indiana for purposes of meeting the “predominantly” requirement, the attorney should measure his or her practice in terms of the overall time spent, rather than in terms of income generated. This determination should be verifiable by time sheets, case records or other evidence.

All attorneys seeking renewal of their provisional admission will be notified by September 1of the reporting year of the expiration of their provisional license and the requirement to submit the application for renewal. Notices will be sent to the last address provided to this office. Any change in address should be sent to the State Board of Law Examiners immediately. All applications for renewal of provisional admission and fees must be received by our office by November 1 of the next year or the provisional license expires.
