Appellate Division - Second Department

In-house Attorney Registration

The Court of Appeals has amended its rules for the Admission of Attorneys and Counselors at Law, adding a new part 522 relating to the registration of in-house counsel in New York. The amendment, effective April 20, 2011, permits attorneys in good standing in certain other U.S. jurisdictions to act as in-house counsel for a New York organization without satisfying traditional admission requirements.

Attorneys seeking to register as in-house counsel should refer to the Rules of the Court of Appeals [22NYCRR Part 522]. The application form (and instructions) for registration pursuant to Part 522 is uniform among the four Appellate Division Departments in New York State. An attorney may apply for registration to the Department in which he or she resides, works or plans to work. Applications for registration in the Second Judicial Department should be filed with or mailed to:

Clerk of the Court
Appellate Division, Second Judicial Department
45 Monroe Place
Brooklyn, N.Y. 11201

Currently, no fees are assessed for application or registration as in-house counsel in New York State.
