The Vermont Judiciary and Vermont Information Consortium (VIC) today announced the re-launch of their comprehensive online attorney licensing service, now in its ninth year. The online service, available at https://secure.vermont.gov/courts/licensing/, is now available to process 100 percent of the state’s annual attorney license renewals.

“We are extremely pleased to continue to offer this valuable service to Vermont attorneys,” said Court Administrator Patricia Gabel upon the re-launch of the service on May 1. “Each year, Vermont attorneys in increasing numbers demonstrate their appreciation of the convenience of this valuable online service.”

Since first launched in 2007, more than 10,000 renewals and nearly $4 million in attorney license renewal fees have been processed by the online service. In addition, more than 95 percent of the transactions are now securely processed through ACH and credit card payments.

Built at no cost to the Vermont Judiciary by VIC through its unique self-funded model, the service was enhanced in 2010 by a comprehensive Continuing Legal Education (CLE) Compliance component, which allows attorneys to accurately enter their CLE credits into the system. The Attorney Licensing service is part of a suite of services that VIC has developed for the Vermont Judiciary since 2005, which also includes CourtPay, the Judiciary’s court fine and traffic ticket payment service, and VTCourtsOnline, the court docket lookup service.
