In-house Counsel Amnesty Program
On October 30, 2015, the Court issued an order establishing an amnesty program between January 1, 2016, and December 31, 2016, for attorneys in violation of the limited admission requirements of Rule 8.105. If in-house counsel participates in the amnesty program, there will be no disciplinary investigation as to whether such in-house counsel complied with all the provisions of Rule 8.105 for the years they should have been, but were not, properly admitted. Additionally in-house counsel will not be required to pay arrears of admission fees or make up continuing legal education credits.
