The Board of Law Examiners is the judicial agency responsible for determining that applicants seeking to be licensed to practice law in Texas meet the qualifications set by the Supreme Court of Texas.
As of June 11, 2015, the Board is pleased to announce that non-resident attorneys who are seeking permission to participate in a Texas proceeding can now submit the required fee online using a credit card or electronic check. The Non-Resident Attorney Fee Submission Form, which now must be completed on-line, has been streamlined, and notarization is no longer required. Acknowledgment Letters can be delivered by e-mail, fax, or regular mail. If a fee is submitted online, an Acknowledgment letter will be sent out by the end of the next business day. This is the first step toward the Board’s goal of offering electronic payment options for all fees handled by the Board. Beginning August 1, 2015, all Non-Resident Attorney fees must be submitted online. For more information, see Non-Resident Attorney Fee (Pro Hac Vice) Edited 7/15/15.
Laptop Exam Information has also been updated with sample instructions and a list of required, permitted, and prohibited items for laptop examinees. Please note that all laptop examinees must bring a power cord that is at least 8-feet long, or must bring an extension cord so their laptop can be powered from an outlet that is 8 feet away.
