Applicants are also required to pay an annual fee of $200, on or before January 15 of each subsequent calendar year for as long as the applicant is admitted pro hac vice before any court of this State. The annual fee shall also be payable to the State Bar of Georgia.
Where possible, applicants should include the name of the judge assigned to hear the case and the case number of the matter. Applicants should inform the Office of the General Counsel of any upcoming hearing or trial date in the body of the cover letter.
