I am a judicial officer. Do I need to satisfy the fingerprinting rule requirements?
It depends on your State Bar license status. All licensees on active status, regardless of job title, are required to comply with the fingerprinting rule requirements. Those on inactive status are not. Judges of courts of record whose status is Judge in State Bar records are not required to be fingerprinted unless and until they return to active status.
*The fingerprinting deadline falls on Sunday, December 1, 2019. Please note that Active attorneys who still have not complied by day’s end on Monday, December 2, 2019, will be enrolled as Involuntarily Inactive effective December 3, 2019
