Registration Statement & Fees


To facilitate the keeping of an accurate Roll of Attorneys, every attorney admitted on or before March 1, 1999, and triennially thereafter on or before the first day of March, shall file with the clerk of this court a registration statement on a form prescribed and supplied by the clerk setting forth the attorney’s current residence and office addresses; his/her Bar Roll number; and the bars of all states, territories, districts, commonwealths, or possessions or other courts of the United States to which the attorney is admitted and the dates of such admissions.


Every attorney admitted to practice in U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana shall record any change in his/her name, address, email address, phone number, law firm, etc. in the attorney’s PACER account within 30 days of such change.

Note: All persons newly admitted to practice before this court shall file the required registration statement at the time of such admission.


Every attorney admitted to practice before this court must pay to the clerk of court a triennial fee in an amount of $45.00.  The fee will be made part of a fund used to defray the expense of administration and enforcement under the court’s Disciplinary Rules and for such other uses and purposes that the court determines appropriate. These fees must be paid triennially, not later than March 1 of the calendar year in which such payment is due.

At the time of admission, the attorney must make the initial triennial payment. Such fee will not be prorated within any calendar year, but an attorney first admitted in the second or third year of any triennial period will be required to make proportionate payment only for those years of such period in which the attorney’s membership in the bar is effective.
