Out-of-State Swearing-In (Proxy)

Congratulations on recently passing the Georgia Bar Exam and/or becoming eligible to practice on motion in the State of Georgia! If you graduated from law school and have passed the MPRE, you are now eligible for admission into the State Bar of Georgia. As an applicant, you may choose any county in Georgia to be sworn in and formally admitted.

If you reside out-of-state, will not be participating in the mass swearing-in ceremony and wish to be sworn in by proxy, please scan and email a copy of your original certificate of eligibility and state issued I.D. to nicholas.cotten@fultoncountyga.gov. indicating in the email that you wish to be sworn in by proxy. Also provide your phone number and out-of-state mailing address. Instructions will be forwarded to you (via email) on this process once your request is received.

**Note: State Bar of Georgia membership fees are directly impacted by the dates in which applicants are sworn-in with the Superior Court. Please contact the State Bar of Georgia for more information regarding membership rates.
