Question
How do I get information on practicing in the United States District Court for the Western District of Texas?
Solution
Please see the Local Court Rules and Attorney Admissions sections. You can also contact the attorney admission clerk in the divisional office in which you intend to apply. Each division has specific requirements that may be in addition to those specified in the local rules. Do not mail your application until all required letters and certificates are included. The fee for attorney admission is $196.00. If you are already admitted and are in need of a duplicate Certificate of Admission, the fee is $15.00.
