South Entrance To RJC Now Open IF YOU HAVE YOUR BAR CARD

We are pleased to report that the South Entrance of the Regional Justice Center is now officially re-opened to lawyers who show their bar card. What does this mean for you? According to one of the marshals, it means an extra 46 seconds of exercise as you walk from the valet parking on Lewis Street around the RJC to the entrance on Clark Street. It also means, perhaps, a little less frustration when you are trying to get to court (at least between the hours of 7:30 a.m and 1:30 p.m.)

The Las Vegas Review Journal has an article with more of the details and commentary about the long lines. You'll want to read the article for a fine example from a local lawyer of what not to do in security and, also, the kind of attitude that makes people dislike lawyers. Seriously, is it that hard to plan ahead to show up a little early and take out your bar card?

edited to fix the cardinal direction of the entrance that is now open to attorneys.  Thanks, commenter.


  1. I may be geographically challenged, but I think it is the South entrance that is now being opened for lawyers, jurors, etc.

  2. Link broke. As of 15 Jul 2013:
