NOTICE TO:
MEMBERS OF THE BAR OF THE
UNITED STATES COURT OF APPEALS
FOR THE FIFTH CIRCUIT

The Fifth Circuit is updating its attorney database. As of September 1, 2000, we mailed over 60,000 bar membership renewal questionnaires to the last known addresses of all the lawyers in our attorney database.

Attorneys have until October 16th to respond to the court, or their bar membership will be terminated. There is no cost to renew bar membership if done before October 16th. Attorneys seeking to renew after October 16th must pay a $50.00 admission fee.

Many of the addresses in our database are invalid because of retirements from practice, changes of names, and moves to new locations, etc. without providing this information to our office. We are publishing this notification to give maximum publicity to our database update.

If you are a member of the bar of this court, AND by September 10th did not receive a letter from the clerk's office asking you to complete a bar membership renewal questionnaire, AND wish to remain a member of this court's bar, you need to contact the court. You may do so by:


1. Completing the bar membership renewal questionnaire on the Internet web site: www.ca5.uscourts.gov/attypurg; or,

2. Writing to us providing your: last name, first name and middle initial, along with any suffix, i.e. "Jr." or "III"; any title, i.e. Assistant U.S. Attorney"; company, organization or law firm; street address (not just a post office box number); suite or room number, if any; city, state and zip code; telephone and fax numbers; social security number; and your e-mail address, if any. Mail your updated information to:
