Beginning June 3, 2013, attorneys seeking admission to the First Circuit bar are required to submit their bar application and pay the admission fee electronically absent a waiver from the Clerk's Office. Notwithstanding this new requirement, the Clerk's Office will extend a two-week grace period until June 17, 2013, during which paper applications and checks will continue to be accepted without need for an explicit waiver request. Attorneys paying online will be able to pay by credit/debit card or by electronic debit from a checking or savings account using a routing number. Instructions are available here. Attorneys may also pay online for certificates of admission and certificates of good standing.
