To become a Bar Member, you must first fill out an application with documentation of good standing and then submit it to the Court. After review and approval by the Justices, notice will be sent informing you of such. The process usually takes around forty-five (45) days to complete. If you have submitted an application and review has taken longer please contact the Supreme Court Clerk. Please DO NOT send payment for bar fees until you are officially approved and have received your letter from the court clerk.
Please mail applications to Kendall Bird, Court Clerk; Cherokee Nation Supreme Court; P.O. Box 1097; Tahlequah, Ok 74465.
