The 2013 Ineligible List is scheduled for publication on Monday, September 30, 2013. Effective the date of publication, lawyers who are declared ineligible for the seventh consecutive year will have their licenses administratively revoked by Order of the Supreme Court of New Jersey.
Under R. 1:28-2(c) enacted by the Court in 2004, anyone whose license is revoked will cease to be a member of the Bar of New Jersey and must undergo the full admissions process, including the bar examination, to regain membership. Even if you do not wish to regain membership in New Jersey, we caution you to check whether an administrative revocation here affects your eligibility for admission elsewhere in the future, in which case you may seek to voluntarily resign from the bar without prejudice pursuant to Rule 1:20-22.
Once ineligible, a lawyer remains ineligible unless and until all obligations for all years are completely fulfilled. There is no such thing as partial reinstatement from the Ineligible List and attempts at compliance for some years without compliance for all years will not alter a lawyer's billing status.
Lawyers currently ineligible six or more years who want to avoid revocation should seek reinstatement immediately. Lawyers may inquire about the amount they owe by calling (609) 292-8079.
