Multijurisdictional Practice (MJP) Program

The Multijurisdictional Practice (MJP) program allows qualified non-California attorneys to practice a limited scope of law in California. The State Bar's MJP Rules (Title 3, Division 3, Chapter 1 of the Rules of the State Bar of California) and California Rules of Court became effective July 1, 2010.

Effective July 1, 2010, an attorney intending to file a MJP application must first register online with The State Bar of California’s Office of Admissions.  After registering, an attorney may submit a MJP application.

To learn if an individual non-California lawyer is registered with the State Bar, go to Attorney Search.

Contact the Los Angeles Office of Admissions at 213-765-1500 for additional questions.
