Quarter 4 Payments Due October 1, 2017: The Lawyer Registration Office recently received information that some of the email notifications queued for delivery the week of August 21st may not have been properly sent. The email notification contained reminder language to lawyers with last names beginning Q-Z that their registration statements were due October 1, 2017. The Lawyer Registration Office is looking into what caused this issue.

Lawyers who elected electronic delivery and who did not receive the email notification may contact the Lawyer Registration Office at lawyerregistration@mbcle.state.mn.us to request that the late filing fee be waived if the registration statement is past due. Lawyers who received the past due notice and who have already paid the $75.00 late fee may contact the Board office with the US Bank confirmation number and request that the late filing fee be reversed.

The Lawyer Registration Office apologizes for any inconvenience that this has caused and is working to correct the issue to prevent it from occurring in the future.
