Applying for Membership to the Bar of the District of Connecticut

A former boutique law firm in Hartford, Connecticut, Ebenstein & Ebenstein balanced personalized attention to clients’ needs with comprehensive services usually expected from larger firms. With a specific focus on personal injury law, Ebenstein & Ebenstein attorneys practiced in all Connecticut federal and state appellate and trial courts, including the United States District Court for the District of Connecticut.

As one of the first 13 district courts established in 1789, the U.S. District Court for Connecticut conducts proceedings in New Haven, Hartford, and Bridgeport. The court’s jurisdiction includes the counties of New London, Litchfield, and Fairfield, among others. The numerous legal activities and matters conducted with the district court include application for membership in the bar of the District of Connecticut.

When attorneys apply to become members of the bar of the District of Connecticut, they submit application materials to the U.S. District Court for the District of Connecticut. Applicants to the bar must submit a Petition for Admission and a Certificate from a Sponsoring Attorney to the Attorney Admissions Clerk at the District Court. In addition to the two forms, each application must include current certificates of good standing from courts to which the attorney is admitted to practice and an application fee paid to the court clerk.
