Fifth Circuit Rules Changes Concerning Attorney Admissions, Recording of Oral Arguments

Last Friday, August 15th, a couple of changes to Fifth Circuit Rules took effect. The change to Rule 34.7 (Recording of Oral Arguments) is discussed here. Rule 46.1, concerning admission and fees, was amended to add another another category of attorneys who are exempt from the admission fee (those who are "newly graduated from law school, licensed to practice in Louisiana, Mississippi, or Texas, and on orders for extended active duty in the Judge Advocate General's Corps.")

The order adopting the changes is available here.
