Appellate Division - Second Department
Orientation to the Profession Program

Mandatory For Admission To Practice After January 1, 2006

Every applicant to the Second Judicial Department seeking admission to the practice of law after January 1, 2006, must successfully complete the Orientation to the Profession Program before being admitted. This requirement applies to applicants who have passed the bar examination, applicants transferred from other Judicial Departments, and out-of-state attorneys seeking admission on motion. The program must be taken within one year prior to the date of admission (see 22 NYCRR 690.21). The 3-hour orientation program on the subject of professional ethics and related topics is administered by the Office of Special Counsel for Grievance Matters.

Only those applicants who have been certified by the NYS Board of Law Examiners as having passed the NYS bar examination, or who have a pending application before the Appellate Division to be admitted on motion, are permitted to attend the orientation program. Applicants who have passed the bar examination need not wait until their application papers for admission are filed before registering for the orientation program. For further information on the orientation program and registration please see the registration instructions. Information regarding participation in the Orientation to the Profession Program in 2015 will be available on this website shortly.
