North Carolina Legal Services Organizations

North Carolina does not provide special admission rules for attorneys licensed in other jurisdictions that are practicing law for legal services organizations. North Carolina General Statute § 84-5.1 provides general guidance for non-profit corporations rendering legal services to indigent clients.

Please see the North Carolina Pro Bono/Emeritus page to view the qualifications for pro bono attorneys practicing on behalf of legal services organizations.

Please also see the North Carolina Bar Reciprocity page to view the requirements for Admission on Motion; the North Carolina Pro Hac Vice page to view the requirements for admission to a particular proceeding; and the North Carolina Multijurisdictional Practice Rules (MJP) for legal practices that are excluded from the unauthorized practice of law.
