IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING THE REGISTRATION OF OUT-OF-STATE ATTORNEYS
The Oklahoma Legislature has passed and the governor has signed the repeal of the Registration of Out-of-State Attorneys Act, 5 O.S. Supp. (2004) §1.1-1.19. The act has been replaced by the Oklahoma Supreme Court with the amendment of Article II, Section 5 of the Rules Creating and Controlling the Oklahoma Bar Association.
Out-of-state attorneys still need to register with the OBA, submit letters of good standing and pay the non-refundable application fee. The out-of-state counsel no longer needs to register with the Oklahoma Tax Commission and is no longer limited in the number of admissions he/she can seek.
UPDATE: As of July 2, 2009, the rules were amended to include a section on attorneys granted special permission to practice in the state of Oklahoma. The full text of the amended rule is available here.
