Request for comment on proposed changes to pro hac vice rule
Share |

The Iowa Supreme Court is requesting comments on proposed amendments to Iowa Court Rule 31.14 that specify the requirements to practice pro hac vice before Iowa courts. The amendments were proposed by the Office of Professional Regulation and contain seven provisions. The provisions include the requirement that applicants register and pay a $250 pro hac vice fee at the OPR website. Paying the fee would allow attorneys to file applications for admission pro hac vice in Iowa Courts for five years from the date of registration without paying additional fees.

Background information about the proposed amendments can be found in these slides prepared by the OPR. The amended language in Rule 31.14 can be seen here.

Any interested organization, agency or person may submit comments regarding the proposed amendments. Specific details on how to submit comments can be found here. Comments must be received by 4:30 p.m., Dec. 28.
