The Notice of Appearance for Substitution, Additional, or Amicus Counsel form requires counsel to provide contact information. It also requires counsel to certify that they have been admitted to this Court and have complied with all rules regarding admission renewal or that they have applied for admission to this Court. In accordance with
Local Rule 12.3(b), each attorney acting as substitution or amicus counsel or any attorney other than lead counsel of record wishing to enter the case must file a separate notice of appearance.
Counsel must be admitted to the bar of this Court or be otherwise eligible to argue an appeal. The Court requires written pro hac vice motions filed before filing the notice of appearance. Admission pro hac vice will be extended as a matter of course to a member of the bar of a district court within the circuit who has represented a criminal defendant at trial and continues representation on an appeal taken pursuant to the Criminal Justice Act. See
Local Rule 46.1(d)(1). Counsel, however, are encouraged to apply for general admission to this Court as soon as they meet the qualifications.
