Indiana Simplifies Admissions for Attorneys with Military Spouses

military spousesLast week, Indiana waived the minimum practice requirements for attorneys seeking admission to the Indiana Bar who have military spouses on active duty.

Rule 6 of the Indiana Rules for Admission to the Bar and the Discipline of Attorneys now allows (1) attorneys in good standing with (2) spouses in the military who are (3) currently residing in Indiana due to military orders and who have (4) received a passing score on the Multistate Professional Responsibility Exam (MPRE), to obtain a license to practice in the state.

The license lasts for as long as the military spouse’s duty lasts and the attorney spouse is living and working in the state.

Indiana is the now the thirteenth state to revise the practice requirements for spouses of active military personnel. Illinois was the fifth state to adopt these provisions through Rule 719 back in June 2013.

The newly-amended rule will officially go into effect on January 1, 2016.
