Rule 201.14 on "Oath of Admission" was amended and adopted by the Supreme Court, en banc, on March 21, 2003 and effective July 1, 2003. The amended rule provides for a new mandatory, six-hour professionalism course worth six general credits (satisfying six units of the required 45-unit general requirements during each attorney’s first compliance period.) The new rule further provides that every applicant must take the required course before taking the oath of admission. Applicants cannot fulfill this requirement through audio-homestudy. Out-of-state applicants should plan accordingly. If an applicant is unsuccessful on the Colorado bar examination, the professionalism course is valid for one full calendar year following completion of the course.
