> 2014 Law Library Registration Fee was Due on January 15th:
The 2014 Law Library Registration Fee for attorneys required* to
register with the Law Library was due January 15, 2014. Attorneys who
have not re-registered and paid their fee will not be able to file
anything with the Clerk of the District Court. It was also time for
attorneys who do not have to register and pay the fee, but do so anyway
to have access to a Library key, to renew their annual registration and
pay their fee. Failure to pay the annual fee by any attorney will
result in the suspension of Library key privileges. A 2014 Law Library
Registration Renewal Form/Invoice was e-mailed to all attorneys for
whom the Library had an e-mail address. The form is also available in
fillable PDF format on this website by clicking here.
