Emergency Filing Procedures

Admission to the Bar: To apply for admission to practice in the Northern District of Texas review the eligibility and application requirements found here. Attorneys that are already admitted to practice in the Northern District of Texas do not need to renew their membership. For court operations under the exigent circumstances created by the COVID-19 pandemic, an attorney who must be sworn in now—either because the attorney has a case pending in the Northern District of Texas or is ready to file in the Northern District of Texas—should contact the Clerk’s Office at 214-753-2190 so that arrangements can be made to be sworn in by the duty judge. If an attorney does not have an immediate need to be admitted to practice, the attorney should wait until after June 1 to schedule a time to be sworn in.
