Idaho Pro Hac Vice

Rule 227 of the Idaho Bar Commission Rules provides the rule regarding admission for attorneys licensed in other jurisdictions who are seeking pro hac vice admission.

Attorneys must be members in good standing of the bar of another state or territory of the United States or the District of Columbia and currently maintain an ongoing practice in the other jurisdiction.

Idaho agencies may use the same standard and procedures for pro hac vice admission.

Generally, there is no limitation on the number of pro hac vice admissions that may be granted to an attorney. However, there is a reciprocal limitation on the number of admissions for attorneys licensed in jurisdictions that place a pro hac vice admission limitation on Idaho attorneys.

Attorneys must associate with a local Idaho lawyer who is an active member of the Idaho Bar and with whom the court and opposing counsel may readily communicate with regarding conduct in the case. Unless excused by the trial judge, the local Idaho lawyer must personally appear with the pro hac vice attorney on all matters before the court.

On all court filings, attorneys will include their current office address in the jurisdiction where the attorney is admitted.

Attorneys applying for pro hac vice admission consent to the jurisdiction of the affected court and the Idaho Bar regarding any alleged misconduct that occurs during the case.

Attorneys are required to file a Motion for pro hac vice admission with the court and pay the fee to the Idaho Bar. The motion must also include a Proposed Order. The applicable court will then enter an order granting or denying the pro hac vice motion.
