Amend Florida bar admission rules to admit without examination qualified attorneys who are spouses of active duty service members stationed in Florida
I, an attorney barred in the State of Florida,support a rule change to the Florida bar admission rules to admit without examination qualified attorneys who are married to active duty service members stationed in Florida. The attorney must prove admission in one other state and be in good standing in all states in which s/he is admitted and prove that his/her spouse is in Florida due to current orders from the US Government. Six states have already adopted rule changes and we know that Florida is next!
The White House, the American Bar Association, and the Conference of Chief Justices have each voiced support for the elimination of licensing barriers for military spouse attorneys. Now, with your help, we can lead an initiative to amend Florida’s bar admission rules.
