How do I transfer to active status?
Under California Rule of Court 9.9.5, all inactive licensed attorneys must be in compliance with fingerprinting requirements prior to being placed on active status. A status change to active status will be effective upon the State Bar’s receipt of the Request to Transfer to Active Status, payment of the current year’s active fees in full, and proof of compliance with the fingerprint requirement.
