Practicing Law in Kansas Made Easier for Military Spouses

KSAL StaffSeptember 13, 2016

The Kansas Supreme Court is making it easier for the spouses of military members to practice law in Kansas.

The Adjutant General’s Department said in a statement released Monday that a newly adopted rule lessens licensing requirements. If the spouses have passed the bar in another state or the District of Columbia, they can temporarily practice law in Kansas without taking the state-administered uniform bar exam. To qualify, the attorneys’ spouses must currently be stationed in Kansas.

Gov. Sam Brownback said in a written statement that the rule is one way to “support our military and their families.”

The proposed rule had the support of several military leaders in the state. Maj. Gen. Lee Tafanelli, the adjutant general, noted that many military families must move outside their home states.
