Arkansas Pro Hac Vice

Rule XIV (Practice by Comity) of the Arkansas Supreme Court Rules provides the rule regarding admission for attorneys licensed in other jurisdictions who are seeking pro hac vice admission.

Attorneys residing outside of Arkansas must be admitted to practice law in the U.S. Supreme Court, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the circuit in which the attorney resides, or in the Supreme Court or the highest appellate court of the state of the attorney’s residence. Attorneys must be in good standing in the court of the attorney’s admission.

Attorneys are permitted to appear, file pleadings, and conduct trials in all Arkansas courts. Any trial court may require the nonresident attorney to associate with a lawyer resident who is admitted in Arkansas. The Arkansas lawyer must be a lawyer upon whom notices may be served. The Arkansas lawyer may also be responsible to the court where the case is pending for the progress of the case.
