Licensure Victory for Military Spouses in Arizona
The state of Arizona will authorize temporary admission of qualified spouses of military service members to the practice of law in Arizona while the military service member is stationed in Arizona. This will go into effect on January 1, 2013.
In April, the National Military Family Association submitted a comment to the Arizona Supreme Court in support of a rule change that would admit qualified military spouse attorneys to the state bar. We are pleased the Arizona Supreme Court adopted the rule change. The time and expense of taking a new state bar exam discourages many military spouses from practicing law as they follow their service member from duty station to duty station. The rule change in Arizona is great news for military spouse attorneys!
The Military Spouse JD Network (MSJDN) is the lead organization who promotes portability of military spouse bar licenses. MSJDN is an international network of legal professionals. We are pleased to partner with the MSJDN to enhance career portability for military spouses who want to sustain a legal career.
Until military families are relieved of the weight of war, we hope you will continue to contribute to their wellbeing.
