Do I have to pay fees immediately when I am sworn in?
No. But all bar members, both inactive and active, must pay annual fees.
Your official date of admission is considered the day you take your oath. Your membership fees will be calculated based on that date, and you should be able to access a fee statement within 30 days. Your fees will be due 45 days from the day you get your invoice. More information concerning fees is available through the State Bar website. If you have additional questions about fees after reading the material on the website, contact Member Records at 888-800-3400.
