Juris numbers are identification numbers assigned to attorneys in Connecticut.
There are several types of juris numbers, which are explained below. Each
attorney is assigned a personal juris number (type “A”) when he or she passes
the Connecticut Bar exam. The attorney may be assigned additional juris numbers
during his or her career, such as a “J” juris number if he or she is named a
judge, but the attorney will always keep his or her personal juris number in
addition to any others assigned.
