What's New

Attorney Filing Season Information:
The system will begin accepting CLE, Client Security, and Annual Exempt Attorney reports on December 26, 2019. You will not be able to file a report before that date. The due data for filing your annual reports without penalty is March 10, 2020. This is a biennium year, so you will need to report three (3) hours of ethics CLE (combined total for 2018 and 2019 calendar years). If you are short hours, you will need to request an extension. Applications for an extension are free until January 15, 2020, after which there will be a $100 extension fee.

A fee of $20 for support of the CLE system will be collected with your annual report. The annual fee for support of the disciplinary system will be $200 and a regular assessment of $50 for the Client Security Trust Fund will be collected. Attorneys in exempt status have a $50 annual exemption fee.

The Office of Professional Regulation accepts fee payments by Mastercard, Visa, Discover, or E*Check.

All attorneys in private practice will be required to designate a successor attorney in accordance with Iowa Court Rule 39.18. You will also be required to identify individuals with knowledge of your practice.
