Sole Practitioner Membership Guidelines

Only an attorney who is in Sole Practice is eligible to register under this category. Attorneys who work for law firms or corporate law departments must register as such. A Sole Practitioner may register as either a Proprietor or Subscriber. The membership term runs from October 1 st through September 30th.

PROPRIETOR:

A Proprietor membership is necessary in order to circulate materials from the Library and requires payment of a one-time Proprietor Initiation Fee of $50.00. Sole practitioners who are Proprietors may also call and reserve materials for pick-up.

SUBSCRIBER:

A Subscriber membership allows a Sole Practitioner to use the resources of the Library but does not include circulation privileges.

Do you wish to register as a Proprietor? Yes No
