The Local Rules of Practice for the Northern District of New York include a provision requiring all permanent, active members of the Northern District bar to pay a $50.00 biennial registration fee unless the Board of Judges directs otherwise. (See Local Rule 83.1(a)5.) The Northern District Board of Judges has suspended the 2021 Biennial Registration in accordance with the provisions of the Local Rule. In lieu of payment, this fee will be held in abeyance with the biennial cycle renewing in 2022. All permanent active members of the Northern District bar will be notified when the 2022 Biennial Registration cycle begins and payments will be accepted. Accordingly, please ensure that the primary e-mail address in your bar record is current. Failure to keep your primary email address updated will result in delivery failure of the biennial fee notice and potential removal from the bar roll for failure to remit the fee.
