(1) Notwithstanding ORS 9.160 (Bar membership required to practice law), the Supreme Court may adopt rules to govern the appearance in judicial and administrative proceedings by attorneys who have not been admitted to practice law in this state. Subject to those rules, an attorney who has not been admitted to practice law in this state may appear as counsel for a party in an action or proceeding before a court, or may appear as counsel for a party in an administrative proceeding, if the attorney is associated with an active member of the Oregon State Bar.

(2) Notwithstanding ORS 9.160 (Bar membership required to practice law), the Supreme Court may adopt rules pursuant to the procedures established by ORS 9.490 (Formulation of rules of professional conduct) that allow attorneys who have not been admitted to practice law in this state to practice law in Oregon on a temporary basis, including performing transactional or prelitigation work.

(3) The Supreme Court may by rule require the payment of a fee by an attorney appearing as counsel for a party in an action or proceeding before a court under the provisions of subsection (1) of this section. All amounts collected from any fee imposed by the Supreme Court under the provisions of this subsection shall be deposited with the Oregon State Bar and are continuously appropriated to the Oregon State Bar. Amounts appropriated to the Oregon State Bar under this subsection may be used only for the funding of legal services provided through the Legal Services Program established under ORS 9.572 (Bar to establish Legal Services Program) and for expenses incurred by the Oregon State Bar in the administration of the Legal Services Program and in collecting fees imposed under this subsection.
