Rhode Island Pro Bono

Rhode Island does not provide special admission rules for pro bono/emeritus attorneys licensed in other jurisdictions.

Rhode Island does not offer Admission on Motion but administers a Modified Bar Exam for attorneys that have engaged in the active practice of law for at least five of the past ten years.

Please also see the Rhode Island Pro Hac Vice page to view the requirements for admission to a particular proceeding, and the Rhode Island Multijurisdictional Practice Rules (MJP) for legal practices that are excluded from the unauthorized practice of law.
