The Supreme Court of the State of Colorado adopted a series of changes to the Rules Governing Admission to the Practice of Law in Colorado. Unless otherwise specified, these new rules became effective September 1, 2014. However Rule 203.2 (Applications for Admission on Motion by Qualified Out-of-State Attorneys) became effective July 1, 2014.
In accordance with C.R.C.P. Rule 203.2, eligibility for on-motion admission in Colorado is restricted to those who are admitted in good standing to practice law in a jurisdiction(s) that accept(s) Colorado attorneys for admission without examination and who have been primarily engaged in the active practice of law for at least three of the five years immediately preceding application to Colorado.
It is the applicant's responsibility to check with the jurisdiction(s) in which you are admitted to ensure reciprocity exists with Colorado. Persons who file an on-motion application, but who are not eligible to do so, may transfer the application to the next scheduled bar exam and the application fee will be applied to take the bar examination. Application fees are non-refundable.
