Acknowledgement And Notice Of Appearance Instructions


The Acknowledgment and Notice of Appearance form requires all parties to provide contact information, any required corrections to the caption, a review of the parties' appellate designations, and information regarding any related cases before this Court. Counsel must also 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(a), this form must be completed and returned within 14 calendar days of receipt of the docketing notice.

Each lead counsel of record or individual appearing pro se must complete this form. Any attorney acting as a 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 on the Notice of Appearance for Substitution, Additional, or Amicus Counsel form provided on the court's website.

Counsel of record 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.

For information concerning attorney admissions and renewals, visit the court's website at or contact Admissions in the Clerk's Office at 212-857-8603.


This addendum must be (1) completed by counsel whom the Court has not yet admitted or approved for renewed admission, (2) submitted in CM/ECF as a separate attachment when filing the Acknowledgment and Notice of Appearance (use the multiple attachments option in CM/ECF when filing the Acknowledgment and Notice of Appearance) with client personal contact information redacted, and (3) submitted in unredacted form in accordance with the procedures outlined in Interim Local Rule 25.2(c) and (d). If counsel represents multiple parties in the same appeal for which the Acknowledgment and Notice of Appearance is being filed, the attorney must separately list each client and provide the client's personal contact information. Attach additional pages as necessary.
