American LegalNet, Inc. www.USCourtForms.com PRO BONO APPOINTMENT IN CIVIL RIGHTS CASES ATTORNEY REGISTRATION This Court occasionally is petitioned to appoint attorneys to represent individuals in civil rights cases who are unable for financial reasons to retain their own counsel. As a condition of admission to the Bar of the United States District Court for the District of Utah and pursuant to DUCivR 83-1.1(b)(3), attorneys are required to accept such pro bono appointments when requested by the Court unless there are substantial and justifiable reasons why a particular appointment should be waived. If the magistrate judge will not waive a request for appointment upon presentation of such reasons, attorneys may appeal the decision to the Chief Judge. Otherwise, attorneys appointed at the request of the magistrate judge should accept the obligation to act as counsel and should enter their appearance as requested. Pro bono appointments will not be so frequent as to cause a burden on attorneys.

I acknowledge my obligation thereunder as a condition of admission to the Bar of the United States District Court for the District of Utah.
