Beginning November 1, 2021, attorneys seeking admission to practice in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania must complete and submit their applications through PACER. Detailed instructions about this process are available here. Paper applications with checks will not be accepted after December 1, 2021.
The process for attorneys seeking admission pro hac vice will not change and those attorneys should continue to follow the instructions available here.
