Unmet Needs Lead To Amended Admission Rule

The North Dakota Supreme Court has adopted effective March 15 a new rule that will allow attorneys admitted in other jurisdictions to provide volunteer legal services in civil matters through approved legal services agencies. The rule was adopted in light of the court's concern about unmet needs of indigent clients. The court requires that participating attorneys be admitted for five years and provide an application so that the court can evaluate the applicant for suitability for the limited permission to engage in North Dakota practice.
