Inactive Status Instructions for a Limited License

Are you having difficulty obtaining the required number of in-court practice hours to maintain compliance with the program rules and regulations?

  • Terminating your employment
  • Completing your externship
  • Planning an extended leave of absence from work
  • Preparing for finals
  • Returning home for the winter or summer break
  • Enrolling in a summer study abroad program
  • Participating in time-intensive law school organizations, events, competitions, etc.

Remember, on the day you are sworn in, the clock begins running and you are required to obtain and report your in-court practice hours every month.

  • The clock does NOT stop when the semester is over or when the job ends.
  • Non-compliance with the Supreme Court rules and regulations governing the ongoing usage and maintenance of your license will result in your termination from the program.

Refer to Rule 6.2
In order to suspend your monthly in-court practice requirement (stop the clock!) and prevent the revocation of your license, you must place your license on inactive status with the Oklahoma Bar Association. There is no form in the Supreme Court rulebook for this process.
